Slain IMPD officer to be honored with Congressional Badge of Bravery

IMPD Ofc. Rod Bradway
A fallen Indianapolis police officer will soon be honored with the Congressional Badge of Bravery.

Officer Rod Bradway was fatally shot in the line of duty in 2013 while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Senators Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly and Rep. Andre Carson will join representatives from IMPD and the U.S. Department of Justice to honor Ofc. Bradway on Friday. His widow, Jamie, will be presented with the Congressional Badge of Bravery, which was created in 2008 to "honor exceptional acts of bravery in the line of duty by federal, state, and local law enforcement officers."

The ceremony will take place at the Indiana War Memorial in downtown Indianapolis.
