On June 24, 2015 the Hutto Police Department lost a hero, Sgt. Chris Kelley. Sgt. Kelley lost his life while pursuing a suspect evading arrest. Not only was Sgt. Kelley a highly respected leader of the Hutto Police Department, he also served in the United States Air Force. He was a dedicated husband, daddy, leader and a friend. During this time, both COPS and ODMP reached out to Sgt. Kelley's wife to offer support. The Hutto Police Department is grateful for the support. In memory of Sgt. Chris Kelley and to show our support to COPS and ODMP, Chief Earl Morrison and Sgt. Chris Vela will be participating in the 5K race in Washington, DC on May the 14th, 2016 to raise funds to help benefit the families of fallen officers.
