PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...



Executive Director Tom Clements
Colorado Department of Corrections

Colorado


End of Watch: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 



Biographical Information:
Age: 58
Tour of Duty: 33 Years
Badge Number: Not Available


Incident Details:
Cause of Death: Gunfire
Incident Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Weapon: Handgun
Suspect info: Shot and Killed




Executive Director Tom Clements was assassinated at his home in Monument, Colorado, by a former inmate.


Two days earlier, the subject had murdered a pizza deliveryman in Denver, Colorado, and stole the man's uniform and pizza carrier. On the night that Director Clements was murdered, the subject had knocked on his door at approximately 8:30 pm. When Director Clements answered the door he was fatally shot before the subject fled the scene.


A deputy sheriff from the Montague County, Texas, Sheriff's Office attempted to stop the subject's car for a traffic violation two days later. The subject opened fire on the deputy, wounding him several times, before leading other officers on a chase into neighboring Wise County. During the ensuing shooting the subject was shot and fatally wounded. It was later determined that the subject was a member of a Colorado white supremacist gang known as the 211s.


Director Clements had served with the Colorado Department of Corrections for two years. He had previously served with the Missouri Department of Corrections for over 30 years, and had started his career as a probation officer.


He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Chief Director Clements. May God rest your soul! Please comfort ALL the Colorado agencies, especially CDOC for this terrible loss in L.E. Nice to see that great police work and agency cooperation resulted in swift justice with his murderer. When a hero falls it is hard, but when one of my hometown hero's fall it is even harder. Thank you for your service and dedication. God be with your family.
