Officer Danny Cordes was killed in a police motorcycle accident on May 23, 1986. The accident was a result of a trailer coming loose from an oncoming vehicle and striking him. We honor the sacrifice Officer Cordes and his family have made to the City of Mansfield and its residents. He remains the only Mansfield Police Officer to die in the line of duty. Officer Cordes' legacy continues to live on with the Mansfield Police Department as our officers serve their community with pride, honor and integrity.
