The Smyrna Police Department announced Monday that Volunteer Chaplain Leonard Rader passed away Sunday night after a battle with cancer.

The members of the Smyrna Police Department are very proud to have served alongside a wonderful public servant such as Leonard Rader. We miss you already Chaplain.
