Covina PD Mourns Loss of Officer Jordan Corder
The Covina Police Department is mourning the loss of Covina Police Officer Jordan Corder, a seven year law enforcement veteran who was killed in an on-duty traffic collision on Tuesday September 30, 2014. Officer Corder was assigned to the Traffic Division as a Motorcycle Officer, a position he coveted, and earned by developing his expertise in traffic enforcement, collision and DUI investigations.
