Police Week: Fallen Officers Memorial

Wisconsin is set to honor four fallen officers at the nation’s capital as part of the observance of National Police Week.

The state has experienced its deadliest year for law enforcement in decades, with four officers losing their lives in the line of duty.

Amidst a violent year for Wisconsin, these fallen officers will be remembered and honored during the nationwide event.

Milwaukee, in particular, mourns the loss of Officer Peter Irving, who was killed on February 7th while on duty.

Joining him in sacrifice are Police Officer Emily Breidenbach, Cameron Police Officer Hunter Scheel, and Sheriff’s Deputy Katie Lacing, who were all tragically killed in April, the most recent loss being Deputy Lacing just last week.

Wisconsin currently ranks second in the country for line-of-duty deaths, behind Louisiana.

Disturbingly, all of these fatalities have resulted from felonious assaults, making this a rare and unfortunate occurrence to witness multiple deaths from felonious assaults in one year, especially this early on.

Ryan Wender, President of the Wisconsin Fraternal Order of Police, is attending Police Week in the nation’s capital and participating in events such as the 35th Annual Candlelight Vigil.

Wender noted that although the four fallen officers from Wisconsin this year have not yet been added to the memorial wall, temporary memorials have been erected in their honor.

This year, Wisconsin is receiving special recognition for the heroes the state has lost, and law enforcement officers from across the nation are reaching out and offering condolences upon hearing about the unfortunate tragedies in Wisconsin.

Police Week serves as an opportunity to honor and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

It also serves as a stark reminder of the inherent dangers that law enforcement officers face every time they leave their homes and say goodbye to their families, uncertain of whether they will return.

This week, the law enforcement community joins together to pay tribute to these fallen heroes and to express gratitude for the dedicated service of all officers who continue to protect and serve their communities.
