Statement from Alderman Terry L. Witkowski June 19, 2015
My thoughts are with the Wauwatosa police detective who was shot this morning on Milwaukee’s northwest side.
My thoughts are with the Wauwatosa police detective who was shot this morning on Milwaukee’s northwest side. I offer my prayers and support to the detective and his family, and I know that our citizens and the entire Milwaukee Police Department are also wishing him a speedy recovery.
As the retired City of Milwaukee Safety Director and chair of the Common Council’s Public Safety Committee, I am well aware of the sacrifice and dedication of our men and women of law enforcement. They are sworn to protect us under the most dangerous and sometimes deadly circumstances imaginable, and today’s shooting reminds us of that fact.
I ask anyone who might have information about the shooting or the suspect to please call 9-1-1.
