Officer killed

Reports coming in of an off duty CPD officer killed in a motorcycle accident on the way back from a 9/11 remembrance memorial. We will update as information becomes available.

UPDATE: The officer has been identified to us, but until we get verification that his family and co-workers have been notified, we won't be posting anything. Please do the same.

UPDATE: Sorry for the delay, but anyone who has been through this process realizes it takes time. Officer John Hurley of the Special Operations Section was killed in a motorcycle accident today while on the way home from a 9/11 Memorial Remembrance. Reports are that he leaves behind a pregnant wife.

Yes, Hurley was a great guy and good officer.

The Washington DC detail was a blast. And lets not forget all those VERY FRIENDLY FEMALE CPD OFFICERS THAT WENT TOO. Talk about an open door policy!

I think some police officers like to mourn death by celebrating the things that they have experienced during life. I don't think anybody posting here intently posted to this thread any thing that would degrade the memory or honor of John Hurley. He was a true gentleman, good officer and a over all great guy.

I think that some of us try to use either humor or pleasant memories as a way to help the depression that such a sudden death of a great young strong person.

Celebrating life and its experiences is a justifiable way to mourn a loss.

Not to dwell on it but "celebrating life" could have involved an amusing anecdote about John in D.C.

Referencing acts committed by female P.O.'s in D.C. is neither amusing nor appropriate in this thread no matter how you attempt to justify it.

No offense... but those "female officers" allowed the orgies in their rooms. But Washington DC or in a squad.. no difference. Most female officers act that way 24/7

No surprize

No surprize this a police site or a college dorm?
Ofcourse you would remain anonymous, where you can sit behind your computer and hide. Because your wife and childeren would be crushed to learn you too participate in those "orgies" or whatever else you imply w/your "open door policy". I did not want to vent here on this fallen officer's thread, but these comments are inappropiate here. And I, one of your co-workers, a female read this site. We need not be creating tension between the sexes now. Grow up! And for the few who decided to take the bait and keep responding to it...."no surprize", "24/7" shame on you. We are all blue, how dare you make those comments about female cpd. Oh, I'm was all her, right? You did nothing but sit there. If you are that immature and feel the need to voice your affairs you are probably an insecure, unattractive man who rarely gets laid. Cuz those that do don't need to prove it! Thank yoo.

On 15 Sep, a true hero will be laid to rest. On that same day, the departments new SWAT Team will become fully operational. John was a member of that team. He always gave it 100%, and was so optimistic about life, his family and his new position. He should be an example to all of us. We lost a great member of our team & family. God bless.

I would like to give S.O.S.the credit they deserve.They gave John a send off that mirrors a City "IN THE LINE OF DUTY" funeral. The Dept woulndn't do much for John because he passed away off duty. Kudos to S.O.S. all the other members of Law enforcement that participated today. God bless you John! May you rest in peace.
