The City of Forest Park will hold a candlelight prayer vigil for longtime Forest Park Police officer and former Interim Chief Jamie Reynolds on Friday, August 5.

The vigil will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Forest Park Police Department Headquarters, 320 Cash Memorial Blvd., which is just off Old Dixie Road.

“The City of Forest Park is saddened to hear about the unfortunate passing of Deputy Jamie Reynolds with the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office,” Mayor Angelyne Butler said in a press release. “For more than 20 years, Jamie served as an officer with the Forest Park Police Department. He was extremely passionate about law enforcement and always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends, colleagues and the entire Spalding County community during this difficult time.”

Reynolds was killed Sunday, July 31 when a tree fell on his patrol car in Spalding County, where he had joined the sheriff’s department after retiring from FPPD.
