Police Chief Bill Jones
Fatally shot in the line of duty
On March 23, 1985, The City of Lorenzo tragically lost an officer in the line of Duty.
As citizens, we are all aware there may come a time in a particular situation, that for one reason or another, police officers may have to lay down their life for the protection and preservation of life and property in our community. This is something no officer wants to do or plans to do, but we understand that it does happen.
In our community we have a reminder that it happens. Lorenzo Police Chief Bill Jones, a good husband and father, good son, good citizens, and good police officer, gave our community what is expected by some, but should be required of no one - his life.
As you read this, remember Bill Jones not just a name, but for who he was, as a man who was loved by his family and friends, missed by all those who had the good fortune to know him, and appreciated by those in the community he served.
