THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE: A huge thanks to some of those good people; the folks at Taylor Audio Visual. They provided all of their services and use of their equipment for Officer Cody Brotherson’s memorial for free. Not only did they do an amazing job with lighting and our audio needs, they quickly adapted to changes and resolved every single problem that popped up. Rob and Rob helped us out. They were incredibly professional and went far above and beyond. We just can’t thank these guys enough for giving of themselves to help us honor Cody.

Thank you to everyone who joined us both in person and in spirit as we honored the memory of our fallen brother, Officer Cody Brotherson. From the words of our Chief, Cody’s mother and Cody’s sergeant to the amazing community support, there were many highlights from last night’s ceremony. Two special moments that definitely stand out: the announcement that a stretch of 4100 South is being renamed Cody Brotherson Parkway and seeing Cody’s baby brother Alex sit in the seat of Cody’s Patrol car. Thank you WVC for all of your support. Cody was proud to serve his hometown and we hope to honor his memory by serving you as he would.

It is with heavy hearts today that we remember the sacrifice made by of one of our own. Officer Cody Brotherson died in the line of duty one year ago today on November 6, 2016. Cody was only 25 years old. Cody was a fine officer who showed passion and integrity in his work. He grew up in West Valley City and proudly served his hometown. Cody was loved and respected by the men and women of this department and his loss has forever changed each and every one of us. Our love goes out to Cody's family today and to the many who knew and loved him. We stand with you today in honoring his memory. Tonight, we will pay special tribute to Cody at a memorial ceremony in his honor. We welcome our community to celebrate his life with us. You stood by our side during those dark and difficult days last year. It is a kindness we will never forget. Stop by tonight, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate, say hello to Cody's family and take a minute to remember the valiant life of a young man who was taken from us too soon. #OfficerBrotherson

It’s said that “having a dog will bless you with the happiest days of your life and one of the worst”. On this sad day, we can certainly relate. It is with sadness that we announce the passing of retired K9 officer, Sam. We had many happy days with Sam. He began his career at WVCPD in July of 2009 as a dual purpose dog, working both narcotics and Patrol. He worked with 3 handlers, Officers S. Palmer, Dellinger and Gillespie. He loved each one and they loved him back. Sam also loved his job and he was good at it. During his career, he was responsible for finding several suspects and a whole lot of narcotics. Sam also won several awards in K9 competitions in Utah and Nevada. Sam grew older and retired from the WVCPD. He went to live on a large farm with Officer Vargo where he had lots of room to run around with horses and just be a dog. Recently, Sam slowed down. The body that had served him so well for so many years became painful and tender with arthritis and his family had to say their final goodbyes. Rest In Peace, K9 Sam and thank you for all of your years of service. May your body be strong and pain free once again as you run across the rainbow bridge.

Being able to bring a little comfort to a child who’s frightened or upset is a great thing. Today, we want to give a big thanks to the members of the Copper Hills Third Ward of the LDS church for making this possible. The group made and delivered child comfort kits for our officers to keep in their cars. We’ve said it before, but we have to say it again; we really do serve the greatest community around!

Throwing it back this Thursday to the days when our Mobile Command Post was an old ambulance that we repurposed. 🚑 In this picture, someone had taken it to home to get it clean and ready for the Westfest parade. 🎡
