On January 17, 2016 Officer Doug Barney was shot and killed by a violent fugitive who had fled the scene of a traffic accident in Holladay, UT. Officer Barney was an 18 year veteran of Law Enforcement, having worked at the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the Taylorsville Police Department and the Unified Police Department. Doug was great officer and served his community with distinction. His service will not be forgotten. Officer Jon Richey was also shot and taken to the hospital in serious condition.
