West Jordan - West Jordan remembered the sacrifice of Officer Ronald M. Wood, who was killed in the line of duty on Nov. 18, 2002 on the same day last November. 

Wood was killed when he was ambushed while trying to apprehend a robbery suspect, according to a news release from the West Jordan Police Department. 

Losing an officer in the West Jordan community is raw but rare. A total of 121 Utah officers have died in the line of duty, according to the non-profit organization Officers Down Memorial Page, which aims to pay tribute to these officers. Of those deaths, two were in West Jordan. Wood was the second police officer to have lost his life in the West Jordan Police Department. Officer Tom Rees was killed in a training accident on February 23, 1986. 

The city recognized Wood’s contribution as one not only to the city, but also to the continuation of democracy. “May we always remember the police officers who have lost their lives to protect our way of life,” said the news release
