Loss of RCPD Records Officer in Plane Crash
The Rancho Cordova Police Department (RCPD) is deeply saddened to share the tragic and unexpected loss of a member of our team. Today, RCPD Records Officer and Reserve Deputy Sheriff Tony Wright was killed in a plane crash in Auburn.
Tony was a 23-year veteran of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office and joined our RCPD team in 2008. He was assigned to RCPD’s Traffic Unit and worked in our Service Center supporting our residents with general inquiries, as well as traffic-related requests.
Tony was 55 years old and leaves behind a wife and family.
We are grieving the loss of a beloved member of our team, and our thoughts and prayers are with Tony’s family and friends.
