Cedar Park Officer Leonard Reed EOW 08-18-10

I

n the history of the Cedar Park Police Department, Officer Leonard Reed was the second officer to be killed in the line of duty. While on a training exercise, Officer Reed, 41, was thrown from his motorcycle on Arrow Point Road after performing a traffic stop. He was rushed to the hospital, but succumbed from his injuries later that evening. Leonard leaves behind a wife, Cynthia, and two sons, Dominic and DeMitri. Officer Reed served with the Cedar Park Police Department for four years. He was assigned as a school resource officer to Vista Ridge High School prior to transferring to Motors. As word got out about the accident, many students who were positively impacted by Officer Reed began to show up at the sight of the accident. The students considered Leonard as a mentor and, in some cases, a father figure. “You did so much for me and

I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t 4 U,” student Mike wrote on a poster left at the scene. Although Leonard was reassigned, he never forgot or abandoned the students. He kept in contact with them on a routine basis, giving advice and helping in one way or another. “Great Achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.” – Napoleon Hill The 100 Club of Central Texas has assisted the family of Officer Reed by giving them a $10,000 check to help with immediate financial needs. The community has been very generous in making donations to the family through the 100 Club. 100% of your donations will go to the family of Officer Reed. Thank you for your continued support of our first responders and their families in time of need. A memorial to Officer Leonard Reed will be included in the next issue of The Responder.

Hello 100 Club, After speaking with you yesterday, I just could not stop thinking about it. I would love to give every penny I have to these families. My heart goes out to them all. I would like to add $500 to my original donation. Still seems so small--but maybe it will help someone. Please feel free to put this toward any family in need. If it can stay in the Game Warden field, that would be great. Thanks again for all your help on the phone--you were so sweet!! God Bless, D. H. [This donor's generous donation sponsored life memberships for three first responders (game wardens). Thank YOU, Ms. H.]
