Family, friends and first responders will be the priority for seating, and the department encourages the public to attend at the satellite location at Champions Centre at 1819 East 72nd Street in Tacoma.

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department said the procession route will be from the Fair Gold Lot to the Church for All Nations.

Several agencies throughout Washington have started gathering Friday morning for the procession. 

Calata died after he was shot last week while serving a felony warrant in Spanaway.

Over the weekend, Calata’s remains were carried by his team members from St. Joseph Hospital to the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.

A legacy fund has been set up for Calata. It was created in partnership with Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers and 100% of the funds will go to Calata’s wife and their young son.

Bloodworks Northwest has set up a memorial blood drive in honor of Calata. Click here for more information.
