My biggest sympathy goes out to Det. Woodhead and to all slain law enforcement officers in the nation. My brother is a officer in the RPD and i think about him and the job he's doing everyday. It takes the biggest heart to put your life at risk for those who you do not know. God bless

Officer Voltz,

Although there have been no details of you "line of duty" death made available to ODMP at this time, your life was taken while you were enforcing the law, and for that you are to be honored with utmost respect. You are one of our fallen heroes . . . I honor you. With brotherly love and respect, Jim Crotty (Former Richmond, VA Police Officer.)
