Prom night will be one Sierra Bradway never forgets, thanks to officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Her father was one of those officers until he was killed in the line of duty in 2013. But his colleagues came out to support the teen on the night of her high school prom.
The Decatur Central High School student was planning to take her pre-prom photos at her father’s grave, and that’s where the officers showed up and surprised her. Colleagues of her dad, Officer Rod Bradway, say he “did everything for his kids.”
Next to Sierra in her some of prom pictures is IMPD Chief Bryan Roach, smiling next to the teen as she holds a photo of her father. Other snaps show dozens of police officers and sheriff’s deputies surrounding the teen. And before she left with her date, they reminded him to “Have her home by 11 p.m.!”
