Watch: Kassy Alia Celebrates Husband Through ‘Heroes In Blue’
Columbia , S.C. (WOLO) — Turning tragedy into triumph. Months after her husband, Forest Acres Police Officer Greg Alia was shot and killed in the line of duty, Kassy Alia is using her personal experience to honor men and women she calls “Heroes in Blue.”
Shortly after her husbands death, Alia started the hashtag ‘HeroesinBlue’ and has since turned it into a non-profit organization that sheds light on the positive actions of law enforcement across South Carolina.
Alia recently sat down with ABC Columbia’s Jennifer Ready to discuss the organization and how she plans to honor her husband and thousands of other officers through this work.
