Commander Jody Makuch was killed on September 7 in a motorcycle accident. The City of Cottonwood was fortunate to have such a well-respected member of our community serving our police department, and this loss is felt deeply by all who have known him, both professionally and personally. He had been with the Cottonwood PD since January 2000 and will be missed by his team and the community he served.
