Friday’s Heroes: Remembering the Fallen

Friday's Heroes - Remembering the fallen officers


Correctional Officer Rodney Kelley, 36

Alabama Department of Corrections


Officer Kelley was killed in an automobile accident on October 4, 2008, when his prison van was struck head on by a tractor trailer. The officer was driving six job applicants to a corrections facility when the accident occurred. All six potential officers were also killed.

Officer Bradley Moody, 29

Richmond California Police Department


On October 4, 2008, Officer Moody was responding to back up a fellow police officer when he lost control of his patrol car. He was severely injured in the crash and was placed on life support. Officer Moody succumbed to his injuries on October 7, 2008. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

Thanks to ODMP for all they do to preserve the memories of the brave men and women of law enforcement who lost their lives in the line of duty.

    Officer Moody was in San Francisco Chronicle the day it happened. He had his K9 dog with him, who suffered minor injuries.

    He was anounced brain dead that day and the only reason they kept him on life support was to get his organs as instructed. So he left while saving a life.

    Bad enough Alabama loses an officer, then six applicants too.

    I hope you keep these pages Lee, however maybe at the end of each month we can round up some retiring live ones. (other then yourself)
