Officer Robert Alexander was stuck by a vehicle and killed while on duty. 

While investigating and accident on the corner of Frederick and Boswell Avenues, Officer Alexander positioned his vehicle in a safe manner with his lights activated to alert oncoming traffic. While speaking with the persons involved with the accident, a vehicle operated by a drunk driver swerved around the corner. Officer Alexander was able to push the two citizens out of the way of the vehicle before being struck, saving their lives, but vehicle flipped over and pinned Officer Alexander beneath it. Rescue services were on the scene within minutes because Officer Alexander had called them for the initial accident, however, he succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Officer Alexander had been with the agency for one year and is survived by one child.
