Officer Blaize Madrid-Evans made the ultimate sacrifice to serve and protect our community.
At just 22, he was beginning his career in law enforcement and had a lifetime ahead of him that was tragically cut short in the line of duty. Our hearts are heavy and we are deeply sorry for his family, friends and our IPD brothers and sisters in blue. To show our support, the Independence Police Foundation is leading efforts to raise $10,000 to assist his family with expenses. Donations can be made online at https://www.ipdfoundation.org/support. Donations collected above our goal will fund support programs for IPD officers in honor of Officer Madrid-Evans. Thank you for your support of the Madrid-Evans family and our Independence Police Department officers.
