Bio: The Dallas Police Department has been the most important part of his life. Rogelio always wanted to become a police officer. He loved his job. To him, it wasn’t just a duty. It was his passion. He was very proud to be a part of the department and to belong to the Northeast 3rd Watch Division. In the three years he served there, he left unforgettable memories with everyone that knew him. Rogelio was a young adult who, outside of work, loved to play basketball, soccer, golf, and going to the gym. Most importantly, he loved to spend time with his number one priority, his FAMILY. He was always very helpful around the house and regularly gave his younger brother, Chris, advice. Rogelio Santander, Jr. is a great example to follow as a person, a son, a brother and an outstanding police officer.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: Armando Luis JuareZ :: Hispanic / Male - 29 years old
   Pic 1    
Location:   Dallas, TX   USA   Tue. Apr. 24, 2018
Summary: Officer Rogelio Santander succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained the previous day while he and two other officers attempted to arrest a shoplifting suspect at a Home Depot store at 11682 Forest Central Drive.

An off-duty officer working overtime at the store and the store's loss prevention officer had detained a subject who attempted to shoplift in the store. During the investigation, it was determined the man had an outstanding felony warrant and the off-duty officer requested additional units. Officer Santander and another officer arrived at the store and remained with the subject in the loss prevention office as the off-duty officer confirmed the warrant.

As Officer Santander and the other officer attempted to place the man in custody he drew a handgun from his pocket and shot both officers and the loss prevention officer, critically wounding all three. The man fled the scene but was located later in the day following a vehicle pursuit.

Both wounded police officers and the loss prevention officer were transported to a local hospital where Officer Santander succumbed to his wounds the following morning.
