In Memory of Hayward Police Officer Rodney Pierce
The Hayward Police Officers' Association mourns the death of Hayward Police Officer Rodney Pierce, who passed away Friday from injuries received in a vehicle accident while on his way to work. In August 2012, Officer Pierce would have served 10 years with the Department.
Officer Pierce, 46 years young, worked as a School Resource Officer and was instrumental in the Junior Giants Program, dedicated to teaching baseball skills to Hayward youth to keep them productive and out of trouble in the summer vacation months.
Before passing, Officer Pierce served as a senior member of the Special Response Unit (SWAT). The 179 members of the Hayward Police Officers' Association and the entire community will miss Officer Pierce and honor his years of service to Hayward. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family - his wife, Susan, and their four young children.
