Today, Utah Attorney General Reyes released the following statement upon hearing of the passing of the Ogden Police officer who was killed in the line of duty:
“This is the worst news possible. I am heartbroken to learn of the Ogden Police officer who was killed in the line of duty while answering a domestic violence call today. His wife and family received the phone call today no law enforcement family member ever wants to get.
“My agency and I send all of our prayers and love to the officer’s family and to Chief Randy Watt and the entire Ogden City Police Department. We also pray for the rapid recovery of the Adult Probation and Parole agent who was also shot in the same incident. This is a humbling reminder of the risks and sacrifice our officers face every single day on the job. I am filled with gratitude to all those men and women in law enforcement who are answering calls even under the added duress of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“I know our Utah 1033 Foundation is activated and we will be ready to support and help the family financially immediately. Other great organizations like FOP are mobilized to assist the family as well.”
