The News Journal of Wilmington says the City Council on Thursday will present a resolution honoring officer Charles W. Schultz.
Schultz was slain on Jan. 30, 1891. His killing remains unsolved. Though his name is on the Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial in Dover, it's for some reason not on the city's list.
Wilmington police spokesman Cpl. Mark Ivey says Schultz will be added to that list and to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington.
Ivey says a retired officer who learned about Schultz while doing research alerted the department to the oversight.
The department's roster of fallen officers currently lists nine members.
