Corporal Thomas Keith Slay was killed in an automobile accident while responding to assist another officer. Corporal Slay and another officer were traveling north with lights and siren in an unmarked truck on Veterans Parkway when another vehicle entered their lane and struck their vehicle at approximately 3:00 p.m. The truck left the road and slid sideways, striking a utility pole on the driver's side.

Corporal Slay was transported to The Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma. The other officer was critically injured in the wreck. Both officers were assigned to a multi-agency drug task force.

Keith was my Field Training Officer (FTO) in 1989, after completing the Columbus, Georgia Police Academy. He was a great officer and a good friend. He loved aviation and he loved being a police officer. He remained my friend through the years. Rest in peace my friend. Keep the blue side up.
