MADISON – The following is a statement from State Senator LaTonya Johnson on the tragic death of a 35-year-old member of the Tactical Enforcement Unit with the Milwaukee Police Department:

“Today my heart, thoughts and prayers are with the Milwaukee Police Department as they mourn the loss of one of their own, for the third time in less than a year. Members of the Department called the loss ‘tragic and impactful’ and described the 17-year veteran of the agency as being ‘loved by all.’

“Very few of us are willing to risk our lives to ensure a safer community, but this officer made the ultimate sacrifice to uphold his oath to protect and serve. Please pray for the families of our fallen officers and the men and women who are dedicated to keeping us safe.”
