PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...



Police Officer Rodney Thomas
New Orleans Police Department

Louisiana
End of Watch: Sunday, July 7, 2013




Age: 52
Tour of Duty: 8 Years
Badge Number: 2053


Cause: Struck by Vehicle
Incident Date:  Sunday, July 7, 2013
Weapon: Porsche Panamera
Suspects: 3 Apprehended


Officer Rodney Thomas, who had always dreamed of becoming a Police Officer, was killed early Sunday morning in a hit-and-run crash on the Interstate-10 High Rise, as he was directing traffic away from a fender bender in which he had been involved. 


Officer Thomas subsequently got out of his car and walked to the other vehicle involved, to see if anyone was hurt.  While out of his car, Officer Thomas was struck by another vehicle, which carried his body on the front of the car, until speeding away, leaving Officer Thomas bloody and motionless on the roadway. EMS arrived shortly after and Officer Thomas was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.


The vehicle which struck Officer Thomas was believed to be a 2011 or 2012 model Porsche Panamera. Three men were charged in connection with Thomas's death, including the confessed driver of the high-performance Porsche.  Police continue to search for two other people of interest in the case.


On Thursday, July 25, New Orleans police released pictures of another person of interest and a vehicle of interest in the death of Officer Thomas.


Rodney Thomas was hired by the NOPD in March 2005.  He worked his entire career with the department in the Second District, and became a permanent, positive fixture in the Uptown community.


Hundreds attended Officer Thomas’s funeral... Some came from as far away as Mobile, Alabama and Jackson County, Mississippi., to honor the 2nd District officer.


Officer Thomas, one of 12 children, is survived by his wife, son, daughter, mother, and 11 siblings, who are experiencing their first loss of a sibling.

God comfort, bless and keep well  the family and friends of brave and honorable Officer Rodney Thomas, whose fine service is remembered with love by so many. 


Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.
