The City of Leeds would like to offer condolences to our sister city, the City of Moody, Moody Police Department and the family of Sergeant Stephen Williams who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty last night. We mourn with any fallen officer, much less when it happens so close to home. It increases our awareness of just how precious life is and what our police officers are faced with on a daily basis as they put their lives on the line for our safety and welfare of each of us and our communities.
Sergeant Williams was an excellent police officer who dedicated his life to law enforcement. He was a husband and father of three. Our hearts are heavy for this loss and our prayers continue for his family,
