TROOPER GARY GIFFORD End of Watch: October 15, 1975. NHP'S FIRST DUTY RELATED DEATH The death Tuesday of Nevada Highway Patrol officer Gary Vance Gifford, 29 marks the first time in the 26 year history of the NHP that an officer was killed in the line of duty. Gifford first joined the NHP in July 1969 and had resigned for a period of a few months earlier this year to take the post of assistant chief of the Fallon Police Department. He was reinstated to the patrol in July and was assigned to the Incline Village area where he made his home. He was patrolling the South Shore Lake Tahoe area Tuesday when he made a routine traffic stop just west of the Cave Rock tunnel. He was shot in the back of the head by a person he stopped, a suspect in a Round Hill Mall Bank robbery. A native of San Francisco, he served four years in the U.S. Navy before joining the NHP. Gifford, is survived by a son, James
Other Comments:
Gary was my friend, we became good friends while in the Navy, and later we both became Peace Officers. So his loss was not only personal, but also as the loss of a fellow officer and friend.. May you rest in Peace my friend.
