The badge number appearing here, badge number 1704, is in honor of Tpr. Chad H. Wolf. On August 28, 2015, Tpr. Chad Wolf was killed when his motorcycle was struck by a vehicle.
Trooper Wolf was on motorcycle patrol and traveling northbound in the right lane of Dixie Highway and crossing over southbound I-75 when a vehicle towing an empty trailer traveling in the left lane quickly changed lanes in an attempt to access the I-75 entrance ramp. As the vehicle changed lanes, it struck Trooper Wolf’s motorcycle. Trooper Wolf was dragged for several miles on I-75 before the driver pulled over at a rest area.
The driver of the vehicle that struck Trooper Wolf cooperated with the investigation and was released without charges.
Trooper Wolf served with the Michigan State Police for seven years. He is survived by his wife and four children.
