Jennifer Lasley: Listening and watching this morning to remember a fallen hero! I come from a family where i have two family members that wear that badge of honor and have been thru good times and tragedies. My uncle has been shot in line of duty and he survived. We have seen the outpouring of family and that band of brothers and sisters. My heart goes out to the Bradway family . I worry everyday about my brother and uncle but know that they are doing what they love and have been educated and trained well. Officer Broadway was an amazing officer and is nothing short of why every man and woman choose to serve and protect that thin blue line!

Stephanie Conover: “We knew Rod from Decatur Soccer. We didn’t even know he was a police officer until we heard the news. He was by far THE BEST referee EVER in soccer. He was always on it, making good calls, and treating ALL players with respect. I’m sure he was only half at good as reffing as he was as an IMPD Officer. Extremely GREAT GUY all around and will be missed sorely. I will continue to keep him and his family in my prayers. God Bless and may your life be filled with many good memories of a wonderful Father, Husband, Friend, and Citizen. Deepest regrets, The Conover Family <3”
