Daughter of police officer killed in line of duty receives amazing prom surprise
Feel good story of the day.
From Fox News:
An Indianapolis teen got quite the surprise when for those quintessential prom photos with her family — she was taken to Crown Hill Cemetery.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and Marion County Sheriff’s Office teamed up to give Sierra, the daughter of fallen officer Rod Bradway, a send-off at his grave on her way to the Decatur Central High School prom, according to WKRN-TV.
According to The Indianapolis Star, his colleagues had remembered him as a man who “did everything for his kids.”
“He sure loves being a daddy,” a former colleague told The Indianapolis Star in 2013.
Sierra’s date is the son of a Marion County Sheriff’s captain. His mother reached out to IMPD, asking for police officers to surprise Sierra at the cemetery, according to The Indianapolis Star.
The dozens of police officers and sheriff’s deputies sent her off to her prom Saturday evening, wishing her a fun — and safe — night. And for her date, IMPD added a little reminder: “Have her home by 11 p.m.!”
