ISUPD Chief Mike Newton Remembers Fallen Officer Lindley

During National Police Week we honor heroes. And we acknowledge the near-impossible responsibility they willingly place on their shoulders every day. We honor those officers lost to suicide, 228 in 2019. One is far too many. And we remember Officer Scott Lindley, who died from suicide on January 2, 2019. Chief Mike Newton, Iowa State University Police Department, offers this remembrance of his friend and reminds police to take care of themselves and stay healthy.
