Trooper Frederick Bailey was shot and killed following a pursuit on I-55 near West Memphis, Arkansas.

He had attempted to stop a vehicle near the interchange of I-55 and I-40 for driving over 100 mph but the vehicle fled towards Marion. As other responding units assisted, the vehicle was stopped on the highway exit to Marion. As officers approached the car the man inside opened fire, shooting Trooper Bailey in the chest. Another trooper was able to return fire and wounded the suspect and take him into custody.

The man was convicted of Trooper Bailey's murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

When you walk out the door with a uniform and badge on, you never think it's the last time you'll put on the uniform, kiss your mate goodbye, provide help to the helpless or be a part of what keeps your community safe.
There's an old saying that's appropriate here, "there is no limit to what we can accomplish if it doesn't matter who gets the credit". A police officer stands ready to sacrifice everything, every day to stand between what's good about this world and what's bad. No credit necessary.

Sergeant Glen Bailey and I were promoted on the same day. He and my brother served together for many years, so I got to know him quite well. If I ever knew a more decent man it's unfortunate I don't remember them.

A credit to his family, community and anyone who ever looked in the mirror the first time they dawned a blue uniform and said, "This is who I am. I hope I can live up to what that means".
