As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.
Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…
TX.-- A Brazoria County sheriff's deputy was struck by a vehicle and killed while he was working a second job directing traffic at a chemical plant on FM 2004 early Monday, Sheriff Charles Wagner said.
Jason Alexander Oliff, 27, a four-year department veteran, was placing flares on FM 2004 in preparation for shift-change traffic at the plant when a vehicle driven by a plant employee struck him, Wagner said. The flares are used to define a safety zone on the road outside the plant during shift changes, Wagner said.
The accident occurred at about 5:20 a.m., Wagner said. Oliff was taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston and pronounced dead there, Wagner said.
