The West Jordan Police Department remembered the loss and honored the sacrifice made by Officer Thomas M. Rees who lost his life in a training accident on February 23, 1986.

May we always remember the police officers who have lost their lives to protect our way of life. Officer Rees was the first West Jordan police officer to lose his life in the service to our community. The second was Officer Ron Wood who was killed trying to apprehend a robbery suspect on November 18, 2002.
