Funeral service held for Peoria officer who died in motorcycle crash
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Hundreds of police officers and others attended a funeral service Tuesday for a Peoria police officer killed in an on-duty motorcycle crash after a demonstration at a school.
Officer Jason Judd was killed July 1 in a single-vehicle accident while leaving Liberty High School after the demonstration.
Judd’s funeral was held inside Christ’s Church of the Valley, and honors for the 21-year veteran of the Peoria Police Department were then held on a grass area outside of the church.
Air Force jets flew over the church as part of the honors ceremony and helmeted fellow motorcycle officers were among those who paused at Judd’s casket to pay their respects.
Judd was survived by his wife and two sons.
