The Graveyard Shift extends our condolences to the families of the brave officers who gave everything to keep us safe.
Reserve Deputy Don Williams, 55
Dale County Alabama Sheriff’s Office
February 8, 2012 – Reserve Deputy Don Williams was killed in a single car crash when his vehicle left the roadway, striking several parked cars. Officials believe Deputy Williams may have suffered a medical incident at the time of the crash.
He is survived by his wife and six children.
Sergeant Almondo Greer-Travis, 40
Detroit Michigan Police Department
February 5, 2012 – At the end of his shift, Sgt. Almondo Greer-Travis called his wife, also a sergeant with the police department, and said he wasn’t feeling well. After the call he went outside for fresh air where he collapsed. His fellow officers called 911 for an EMS transport. Three minutes later, however, the sergeant lost consciousness so officers placed him in the backseat of a patrol car and transported him to the hospital while performing CPR. But their efforts were unsuccessful.
Sgt. Greer-Travis married his high school sweetheart, Stacy, and together they had three children.
