Patrick Joseph Riley

Sergeant Patrick Riley was struck and killed while directing traffic in a construction zone at 64th and University Streets. He was standing in the middle of the intersection with a four-way flashing red lights. After waving through a double tractor trailer to turn left around him, he turned his attention to a car approaching the intersection and at this time his shirt became caught by the fender of the turning tractor trailer, dragging him under the dual tires where he was run over and killed.

Sergeant Riley had served with the agency for 12 years. He is survived by his wife, mother, and siblings.

I’d like to reply to Officer CJ Just

Thank you for always remembering Pat.
He was a wonderful officer and a wonderful man.
I never thought it was strange to receive a letter from a young person.
Honestly, getting letters and notes from people helped me in so many ways.
Thank you for being one of the people who helped me heal.
