Gone Home: Police Officer and Eagle Scout Brad Jones

Posted on 02 November 2011 by Editor

Arizona Police Officer and Eagle Scout Brad Jones was shot in the line of duty on October 28th, 2011.  Officer Jones was responding to a back up call from a probation officer meeting with a 20 year-old male at a Glendale apartment complex.

Glendale Police Department officials said Ryan Heisler allegedly pulled out a gun and began firing, striking Officer Jones before fleeing in the police officer’s vehicle.

Officer Jones was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona where he passed away from his injuries at about 1 am, surrounded by family, friends, and fellow police officers.

Jones grew up in Peoria, Arizona.  He was one of five siblings. Jones graduated from Centennial
High School in 2004. Jones became a police officer for Glendale Police Department four years ago.

The community has responded with memorials outside of the police station and the location where Officer Jones responded to his final call for service.

A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday night to honor Bradley Jones. The vigil was sponsored by the Glendale Police Officers Coalition and Glendale Police Department and was held at the Public Safety Memorial at Glendale Civic Center Plaza.

Officer Jones’ funeral is scheduled for this Friday, November 4th at 10 am at Christ Church of the Valley in Peoria, AZ. Interment will immediately follow the service at Phoenix Memorial Park in Phoenix,  Arizona.

Grand Canyon Council, Boy Scouts of America is organizing Eagle Scouts to help remember Officer Jones’ ultimate sacrifice by holding American Flags up all along the procession route to Phoenix Memorial Cemetery with Glendale policemen. The Council is looking for any and all Eagle Scouts, past or present to help in this endeavor. They are asking all Scouts to wear their complete field uniform, including neckerchief, and Eagle Scout Medals.

Officer Bradley Jones is survived by a wife and two small children. A memorial fund has been set up, if you would like to make a donation please find the information below:
