CHARLOTTE, NC (WJZY) - On Monday, family and friends said their final goodbyes to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police candidate who collapsed and died during training last week.
Jeremy Moseley was only 29-years-old when he was hired on to join CMPD's 174th recruitment class. Officers said Moseley was outside exercising with his fellow police candidates when he suddenly collapsed last Tuesday morning.
Training staff and firefighters tried to help Moseley as they waited for MEDIC to arrive. Moseley was taken to Carolinas Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
He was only about a week into a six month training period at the police academy.
Russell Moseley, one of Jeremy’s family members, told FOX 46 Charlotte, “Jeremy really wanted to be a police officer.”
After Moseley’s funeral Monday at Saint Matthew Catholic Church, CMPD Chief Kerr Putney told reporters, “He (Jeremy Moseley) was giving his all. He was trying to live up to an oath that he didn’t get to take. Not only the recruit class, but current officers need to honor that.”
