INDIANAPOLIS -- On a weekend already filled with emotion, dozens of officers showed up at the Indiana State Fair Sunday morning to support the daughter of a Boone County dispatcher who died unexpectedly earlier this week. 

Officers from the Westfield Police Department and the Boone County Sheriff's Officer filled the seats at the goat show in support of 15-year-old Izzy Clouse. 

Izzy's father, Westfield Police Officer Scott Clouse, died from cancer in 2015. Her mother, Boone County dispatcher, Amy Clouse, died unexpectedly earlier this week. Amy had worked for the dispatch center for more than 20 years. 

Izzy has been showing sheep and goats since she was a little girl and was at the fairgrounds Thursday when she heard about her mother's death. She was determined to make today's competition. 

Izzy said despite everything she has gone through this is where her parents would have wanted her to be so she was determined to make the competition. 

Izzy placed third in her class. 

After the competition, the Boone County Sheriff told Izzy she will always be a part of their family.
