Sergeant Jeffry Edelson was killed in an automobile accident while on patrol near Liberty, New York.

While en route to a criminal mischief complaint, he made a U-turn on SR-55 to possibly conduct a traffic stop. As he attempted to catch up with the possible violator, his passenger side wheels left the roadway and struck the gravel shoulder. His patrol car went out of control, crossed the roadway, and struck a tree.

Earlier in the month, Sergeant Edelson had passed the Sergeant's exam. He was posthumously promoted.

Sergeant Edelson had served with the New York State Police for 6 years, and was assigned to Troop F.

He is survived by his parents and a sister.

Sgt Edelson,

I attended your funeral years ago as a BCI member to honor you and I found out that we had several things in common. I too only wanted to be a state trooper. I also found out that you had been assigned to the same zone as me out of the Academy. While at your funeral I ran into Trooper Jose Rosado who was assigned to traffic control at your service. Trooper Rosado joined you approximately 3 years later in heaven.

May you and Jose rest in peace.

Sr. Inv. Perry J. Tyner (ret.)
