PORT SALERNO— The United States Postal Service office here will be renamed after Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock, who was fatally shot earlier this year.

Bullock, 42, was the first law enforcement officer in the history of Martin County to die while working in the line of duty, Martin County Sheriff Will Snyder said. 

Legislation was passed in the U.S. House of Representatives Friday morning by U.S. Rep. Brian Mast in Bullock's memory.

“There are no words or actions that can pay the debt we each owe heroes like Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Joseph Bullock,” Mast said in a statement. “But today, the House of Representatives helped me honor a hero by passing this legislation, preserving his legacy in our community for generations to come.”
