Broward Sheriff's Sergeant Christopher Reyka

Broward Sheriff’s Sergeant Christopher Reyka

The mission of the, “9463 Foundation for Florida’s Fallen Officers” is to: remember fallen heroes, educate the public, and support and assist the families who have lost loved ones while they were serving our community.

The foundation unwittingly began on August 10, 2007 at 1:20 AM, when Broward Sheriff’s Sergeant Christopher Reyka came upon two suspicious vehicles parked to the rear of a Walgreen’s drug store in Pompano Beach, Florida. Upon initiating an investigation, Sgt. Reyka was shot and killed by assailants who have yet to be brought to justice.

Chris, a former United States Marine, was a: good son, loyal brother, doting father, loving husband, committed friend and humble hero. Chris left behind a beautiful wife and four exceptional children; a family who has survived a horrific loss.
