TORONTO, OH --

Nathan Rock was from Toronto, but he served and protected in Martins Ferry as a part-time policeman until his work in the Marine Corps took him to Iraq.

Monday night, a family friend notified NEWS 9 Rock had died in the line of duty.

The Defense Department has not released any details about his death in Iraq, but his friends and co-workers here in the Valley are grieving.

Rock was serving in Iraq and had hoped to return home next month.

Rock was a part-time officer in Martins Ferry when he left for the war and worked alongside his brother, who is a full-time officer on the force.

Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter tells NEWS 9 Rock would often check in from overseas to see if there was still a spot for him on the force when he came home.

"The loss is devastating not only for his family, but for our department," Carpenter told NEWS 9. "We were looking to put him on as the next full time officer and it's a shame things happen the way they do."

Susan Kulstad who is actively involved with Toronto's military family support group says there are no plans yet for a public memorial service until Rock's body is returned to his family in Toronto.

Militarization of Law Enforcment:


Has NOTHING to do with LEOs who also serve in the military.

WTF? Are you out of your mind? AN LEO who is also a grunt? How is that "miliarization of law enforcement"?
