My thoughts and prayers go out to the officer who was shot and his family.

The shooting this morning of a Wauwatosa police detective near N. 60th St. and W. Good Hope Rd. has drawn a massive law enforcement response to the 9th Aldermanic District. My thoughts and prayers go out to the officer who was shot and his family.

I want to express my sincere gratitude to all of the law enforcement agencies involved in the ongoing search for the shooter, including Police Departments of Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and Brown Deer, the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department, FBI, ATF and any other agencies. I ask all residents to cooperate with officers and to call 9-1-1 immediately if they have any information about the shooter or the incident.

As a retired longtime Milwaukee police officer and commander, I know well the daily hazards and risks that go hand in hand with being a sworn member of law enforcement. Officers risk their lives on a daily basis in the line of duty, and those looking for the suspect are at this very moment risking their lives for the safety of our community.

May they complete their duty today successfully and without any harm coming to them.
