The Riverside Police Department announced the passing of Detective Aaron Brandt. Brandt was diagnosed with acute leukemia and had fallen ill. His condition worsened yesterday and he was admitted into the ICU at Loma Linda Hospital where he passed away last night at 10:56 p.m.

Brandt began his career with the Riverside Police Department as a police cadet in 1995. He was promoted to officer trainee in 1997 and completed the Riverside County Sheriff’s Basic Peace Officers’ Academy in January 1998. He was promoted to detective in 2005 and has been assigned to the Technical Services Unit (TSU – Bomb Squad) since 2007.

“This is a tremendous loss to the RPD and City of Riverside family,” said the Riverside Police Department. “Please keep Aaron’s wife Melissa, his 13-year-old son, and 10-year-old daughter in your prayers, along with all their family, loved ones, and Aaron’s TSU partner and team members.”
