Baton Rouge, La. — June 9, 2021 — We are saddened to learn of the passing of one of our finest. Yesterday, Corporal Casey Hart, who served the citizens of our community as a Baton Rouge Police Officer for over 14 years, succumbed to an illness while on deployment with the National Guard.
Corporal Hart was assigned as a Uniformed Patrol Officer at BRPD’s 3rd District. As a member of the National Guard for 24 years, he rose to the rank of First Sergeant.
I want to join the men and women of the Baton Rouge Police Department in recognizing Corporal Hart’s tireless dedication to the Department, our city and our country. His life represents a life lived in service to others, and I extend my condolences to Corporal Hart’s wife, Keri, his daughter, Taylen, and all his friends and family.
