Corporal Jason Harwood was shot and killed while making a traffic stop. During the stop, one of the vehicle's occupants opened fire, fatally wounding Officer Harwood. The suspect, believed to be the shooter, turned himself in shortly after the killing.
Harwood had served the Topeka Police Department for 15 years and had received a Letter of Accommodation, Distinguished Service Bar, and two Department Challenge Coins. He served in the hit-and-run
and K-9 units before he was promoted to corporal in May 2012.
He leaves behind a wife, Lori Anne, and two sons. He is also survived by his mother, step-father, three brothers, four sisters and his K-9 partner, Magnum.
