In a statement CPD’s Chief of Police stated “This year has been a very tough one for our department. Captain Roger Dial was diagnosed with cancer in March and he began treatment to beat this horrible disease. Capt. Dial came back to work in the fall and after a month began feeling bad again. He found out the cancer was not totally gone. We lost him December 6th and put a huge void in our police department family. This has been a very tough loss for me, I have spent my entire career with this department serving with him. We have worked shoulder to shoulder in some very intense situations.”
