Bradley village officials are urging the public to show support for the coming-home celebration for Officer Tyler Bailey. The Bradley officer is headed home from his extensive rehab on Wednesday, November 23rd. Well-wishers are asked to line the route as he returns to the Village of Bradley police department. He's expected to make a stop at the Bradley Police Station around 2 pm.
