BUFFALO, NY-- Fallen Buffalo Police officer Craig Lehner was honored Thursday during Mayor Byron Brown's State of the City address.

Brown announced Lehner was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant and that the Buffalo Police K-9 Training Facility will be named in honor of Lt. Lehner.

Lehner died last October during an underwater training exercise in the Niagara River. His body was recovered five days later.

His family filed a notice of claim against the City of Buffalo and Buffalo Police Department for negligence in his death.
