Goelet Alessandro Carlo Beuf

Officer Beuf was killed when both he and a suspect were struck by a tractor-trailer while struggling on the side of a roadway at N. 24th Avenue and W. Lone Cactus Drive. Officer Beuf had responded to a call and was approaching a man when the man began to run. Officer Beuf chased the suspect and caught him on the side of a roadway. As the two struggled, they fell into the path of a slow-moving tractor-trailer.

The truck stopped, but Officer Beuf and the suspect were entangled in the front axle. Officer Beuf was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The suspect was critically injured in the accident. When he recovered he was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution for the death of Officer Beuf.

Officer Beuf, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, had been with the agency for one year and is survived by his wife and four children.

I didn’t get to know you very well, as I was young, but, my family grew very close to yours upon your passing. I remember times where Aly would go to no one but me, and it was so hard for me to comprehend why they had to lose their daddy. Though I didn’t know you well, I grew to love you in a way through your family. We still think about you and about them, though we have lost touch. Thank you for your service and for the impact you made on my life.
