**VIDEO FOR DOWNLOAD: Congresswoman Remembers the Life & Service of Officer Trey Marshall Sutton

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger tonight honored the life of Henrico County Police Department Officer Trey Marshall Sutton on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mister Speaker, I stand here to honor the life of Henrico County Police Officer Trey Marshall Sutton.

Officer Sutton was described as “kind, confident,” and “someone who devoted his life to others.”

Originally from Chesterfield County, Officer Sutton graduated from the police academy earlier this year — and he was training to serve in the Henrico County PD’s patrol bureau. He was also soon to be married.

Last week, Officer Sutton’s life was cut tragically short in a car crash during field training. In an instant, Virginia lost one of our best — someone who demonstrated both bravery and compassion through his actions.

We will remember Officer Sutton for his service to our community. We will remember his commitment to our Commonwealth. And we will remember his story as one of purpose and inspiration for our country.

In the words of the Hero’s Welcome prayer, “Through your selfless actions, others will hear the call.”

My prayers are with Officer Sutton’s fellow officers in the Henrico County Police Department, his classmates at the academy, his fiancée Zoe, and all of his loved ones.

Please join me in honoring the life of Officer Trey Marshall Sutton. I yield back.
