Officer Rod Bradway Will Be Laid to Rest This Week

IMPD Officer Rod Bradway
Officer Rod Bradway will be laid to rest on Thursday morning at 11:00 a.m. at Crown Hill Cemetery.  Public visitation will be held on Wednesday from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m.  

Our first responders and law enforcement officials face dangers every day in the line of duty and in the name of public safety.  Officer Bradway's sacrifice is the ultimate example of the dangers they face in their daily line of work.  While there is always a danger that any of us can wake up and not come home at night, police officers, firefighters, and other first responders face these dangers more than we realize and in ways we can't comprehend.  It is life on the edge.  They acknowledge it, and they accept it.  Their families do too.   

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family and friends of Officer Bradway.  

Out of respect for the memory of Officer Bradway, there will be no blog updates here unless there is some sort of breaking news requiring some sort of reaction until Friday.  The title bar of the blog will also be dimmed in honor of Officer Bradway.
