News

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – An entire community shut down for nearly an hour, Monday, as students, business owners, and individual members of the public stopped what they were doing to stand in silence. 

It was their way of showing support and solidarity for 25 year-old Fallen Officer Cody Brotherson, a West Valley City policeman who died in the line of duty while serving the people he loved. 

Not only did Officer Brotherson serve and make the ultimate sacrifice in West Valley City, but he grew up there as well.  Community members say they knew him and loved him. 

From Brotherson’s former junior high school teachers to employees at Brotherson’s go-to gas station – to a Vietnam veteran who stood at attention during the entire funeral procession, people of West Valley City are honoring the fallen hero any way they know how. 

Watch Ali Monsen’s story in the video clip above for more on the procession and how Officer Brotherson’s community will remember him.
