Aaron Daniel Peru

Police Officer Aaron Peru was killed in an automobile accident on U.S. 70, just west of Safford, Arizona.

He had been directed by the shift sergeant to report to the police station prior to traveling to the police academy in Tucson. A trailer being pulled by an oncoming vehicle broke free and collided with his car head-on, causing fatal injuries.

Officer Peru had served with the San Carlos Apache Tribal Police Department and had been sworn in only 30 days earlier. Prior to his time with the agency, he worked as a detention officer for the Graham County Sheriff’s Department from 2004 until 2008.

He is survived by his four children and parents.

over the past week I have had the honor and privilege to get to know your son Aries. He is an amazing young man with a great heart. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I got to spend with him and I know you must be as proud of him as he is of you. Rest easy and thank you for watching over him and all of us from above.
