Rod Cox, Chief of Police – Cypress Police Department:  

It is with tremendous sadness that I share the passing of Police Officer Matthew Ward on October 8, 2017.

Matt was a graduate of Los Alamitos High School, and held a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a Master of Public Administration from Brandman University.  He earned an Advanced Peace Officer Standards and Training Certificate.

Prior to joining the Cypress Police Department on April 28, 2008, Matt served as a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff assigned to the Mens’ Central Jail after graduating from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Basic Academy.

During his career with us, Matt served as a motor officer, detective, Honor Guard member, Homeless Liaison, patrol officer and Police Explorer Advisor.  He earned designation as Employee of the Quarter in 2011 for his enthusiasm, strong work ethic, and dedication.

Matt was always willing to help out others especially his police family.  He assisted with National Night Out, Open House, Special Olympics Annual Torch Run, 5K/10K Walk/Run, Tip-A-Cop, Read Across America Day, and Every 15 Minutes.  He was also a member of the Social Media committee.

Matt’s positivity, warm smile, superb work ethic and sense of humor will be greatly missed.  Please join me in keeping Matt’s wife, Allison, and their sons, Liam and Anderson, in our thoughts and prayers.
