Timothy Jacob "Jake" Laird
Birth: Sep. 17, 1972
Cass County
Indiana, USA
Death: Aug. 18, 2004
Marion County
Indiana, USA

We have definitely lost a Hero in Police Officer Timothy "Jake" Laird. He is a man who truly loved his job and enjoyed helping others. Jake died from a single gunshot wound to the left chest from a SKS assault rifle used by Kenneth Anderson, 33. Anderson murdered his Mother, fatally shot Officer Laird and wounded four other Police Officer's, before being fatally shot himself in the gun battle that began about 2am on Wednesday, August 18, 2004.

Jake was a member of the tactical unit in IPD's south district and had been on the job since March 6, 2000. Although he was only on the force four years, he had received two commendations in that time. He was in the Marine Corp for 8 years and the reserves for 2 years. Most importantly Officer Laird is the Father of a little 7 year old girl.

I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who put their lives on the line each day to help citizens and for also trying to make this world a safer place to be in. I would also like to thank the families of these special men and women for their sacrifice as well and especially I want to give a huge thank you to Officer Jake Laird for the ultimate sacrifice that anyone can make, your life. We are all bound together by love and Jake, you "are" loved very much and will definitely be missed by all who knew you. May you rest in eternal peace.
