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.
