In Honor of Officer Kevin Will
It was a somber evening last week as another name was added to the Wall of Honor for fallen Officer Kevin Will.
The Wall of Honor is located within the Houston Police Museum at police headquarters. It stands as a tribute to all officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice serving the city of Houston and its citizens.
On May 29, 2011, Kevin was interviewing a witness to a motorcycle accident when a drunk driver drove around barriers and emergency vehicles which were blocking the closed freeway. Seeing the vehicle approach, Kevin warned the witness to jump out of the way. The citizen was able to jump to safety moments before Kevin was struck and killed.
Kevin had served with the Houston Police Department for almost two years. He is survived by his expectant wife, two children, and parents.
