Fallen BPD Officer to be Remembered

By  | 

Services have been set for the Bryan Police officer who died Monday evening.

Visitation for Jim Do will be Thursday from 5-8 p.m. at Hillier Funeral Home. There will also be an hour of visitation at Central Baptist Church Friday starting at noon, followed immediately by a funeral service.

Do was running near Sam Houston Elementary Monday evening when he collapsed. A preliminary autopsy shows heart disease as the cause of death.

Bryan Police are coping with the tragic loss.

"We have to come to grips with the job itself being inherently dangerous," said Assistant Chief Pete Scheets. "What is surprising about this is this officer didn't die in the line of duty. It came from an area we weren't expecting it. It was his own physical body giving out on him, and not that he was confronted by a threat, which we're trained, mentally, to deal with.">

Do was an Aggie grad and had been with Bryan PD since 1999.
