Reserve Sergeant Joseph Pozell succumbed to severe injuries sustained three days earlier while directing traffic at the intersection of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue, NW, in Georgetown.

He was struck by a vehicle at approximately 1530 hours when he stepped back into the path of the driver of a small SUV that was making a turn. He was transported to George Washington University Hospital where he died.

Reserve Sergeant Pozell had served in the Metropolitan Police Department for 3 years. He is survived by his wife and son.

On May 16, 2006, one year after his death, he was posthumously promoted to the rank of Reserve Sergeant.

I think of you often Sgt Pozell. We never met, but I was there when you were taken. You had, just moments before, left a table filled with my coworkers having lunch before going back to the memorial to honor our friend. You laughed in your final moments. I hope that brings comfort to your loved ones, both blood and blue. I will never forget you.
