Police Officer Tiffany Hickey succumbed to injuries sustained in a vehicle crash during a pursuit six days earlier.

Officer Hickey was the passenger in the patrol car, being driven by her FTO, when they attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding and running a red light. Officer Hickey radioed dispatch to notify them of the chase but dispatchers never heard the call because another officer was transmitting on the radio at the same time.

Approximately three minutes later the FTO swerved to avoid another vehicle in an intersection and struck a light pole. Officer Hickey remained in serious condition for six days before succumbing to her injuries.

Officer Hickey had served with the Cockrell Hill Police Department for only one month.

Tiffany,

While I did not know you to well, I had a few classes with Chad. I met your father briefly at the Ride for the Fallen in 2013. My wife and I had bought a new Harley at Cowboy Harley Davidson the day before so I parked a little further away from the crowd. I remember looking at your dad's bike and seeing a beautiful picture of an angel carrying an officer to Heaven. As I looked around, I saw a sticker with your name on it and I told my wife I knew who you were. At about that time, your dad walked up and we started talking and he told me who he was. He was very nice. My wife and two kids are planning on attending the Ride in a couple of weeks. I hope to see your dad and talk to him again. My son will ride with me for the first time in an organized ride. He's very excited! I am now an FTO with my department. On the day of the Ride, I will be thinking about you and all of our other brother's and sister's in blue who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Our job is getting harder by the day but we do it because we love it.

Rest in Peace.
