In Memoriam
Mourning Badge Over a hundred police officers are killed each year in the United States in the line of duty.  For more information on line of duty deaths, visit the Web site of the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund.

Although no police officer has been killed in the line of duty in Sweeny, we thought it appropriate to mention here members of the department who have died or were killed while still employed with the department.

K-9 Baker

K-9 Baker was killed in 1993.  He served for three-and-a-half years and was the department's first canine (K9). His name was Baker, and he was killed, among other reasons, for being a police dog.  To learn more about K-9 Baker, his service, his death, and the prosecution of the two accused of his killing, click here.

 

Sgt. Joseph Dale (JD) Gregory

Sgt. Gregory passed away on Sunday, June 26, 2005, at his residence in Brazoria, Texas, while off-duty.  Autopsy results showed Sgt. Gregory died as a result of an enlarged heart.  We are working to put together a memorial section in Sgt. Gregory's honor.  Please visit here soon.
