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…

17-year-old arrested in killing of Ga. deputy

Officer Down: Richard Daly - [Clayton County, Georgia]


Associated Press

JONESBORO, Ga. — Police say they have arrested a teenager suspected of fatally shooting a sheriff's deputy south of Atlanta.

Clayton County Sheriff Kem Kimbrough said Thursday that 17-year-old Jonathan Bun of Riverdale was arrested in the killing of deputy Rick Daly.

At least 40 police officers were involved in a manhunt after the shooting Wednesday.

The sheriff says Daly was making a traffic stop so officers could serve a warrant on Bun for an armed robbery charge when the shooting occurred.

He says the 55-year-old Daly had been in law enforcement for more than two decades.

Kimbrough says it's the first time a Clayton County deputy has been killed in the line of duty.

The sheriff says Bun is being treated at a hospital for bites from a police dog.
