Young Officer, Expecting Father, Killed in Georgia
This week has been littered with senseless and tragic attacks on our Law Enforcement Officers. Officer Chase Maddox, shot and killed yesterday in Georgia while serving a warrant, was just 26 years old. In a few days, his pregnant widow will give birth to a child he will never know. Please keep his young family in your thoughts and prayers.

Police Officer Chase Maddox was shot and killed when he responded for backup to two deputies from the Henry County Sheriff's Office who were serving a warrant on February 9, 2018.
Officer Maddox served with the Locust Grove Police Department for five years and was survived by his expectant wife and son. His second son was born just four days after his death.
Our Give Blue fundraiser began shortly after hearing of the loss of this hero. We quickly saw the community banding together to show their appreciation for the service of Officer Chase Maddox. The fundraiser inspired beautiful testimonials and numerous contributions. We send our deepest thanks to everyone that took part and continues to wear their Thin Blue Line Bracelet in his honor.
“People who encountered him experienced Heaven on Earth,” said the Rev. Coleton Segars, Maddox’s brother-in-law. “He just pulled people up. He just lifted the room. Our world is broken in many ways, and Chase worked to mend it.” - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A donation of $4,417.96 was made to a local Gofundme, organized by a close family friend, to directly support the young family. The donation will continue the great work that Chase offered his commnity.
God bless you, Chase Maddox. May you rest in peace.
