Police Officer Jose Perez was killed while responding to a call to assist an officer.

While en route to the call for assistance, Officer Perez's patrol vehicle collided with another patrol car that was also responding to the call for assistance.

Officer Perez was taken to Methodist Hospital, where he died from his injures.

Officer Perez was assigned to Patrol Borough Brooklyn South Task Force.

In 1995, Officer Perez was posthumously awarded the New York City Police Department's Purple Shield Medal.
