MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Attorney General Brad Schimel issued the following statement after a Milwaukee Police Officer was killed in the line of duty:
“My heart aches for Milwaukee PD, the city, and the family and friends of an officer killed while executing a warrant. Warrant officers are the ‘tip of the spear’ in law enforcement; they are heroes, going after the most dangerous people in our communities. Today this city lost a truly brave hero and committed guardian of the city, and my prayers will be with all who knew him in the coming days.
Every day, the family of our officers watch their loved one leave the safety their home to protect us, not knowing if they will return.Tonight as we mourn the loss of this brave soul, and every day, I ask all Wisconsinites to pray for the safety of every Wisconsin law enforcement officer and their families.”
