Condolences for off-duty Milwaukee officer death

Statement of Alderman Cavalier Johnson June 18, 2019

I offer my sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Kou Her, who passed away this morning after a driver sped through a red light and hit the officer’s car on his way home from work at 60th and Capitol in the 2nd District.

Officer Her was an exemplary member of the Milwaukee Police Department for two years and served in District 4. The death of an officer is a tragedy for the community they serve, especially one with a long future of service ahead. Officer Her’s death should be a reminder for all to be cautious while driving and respect the potential dangers officers face when protecting our community, both on and off duty.

I urge all residents of the 2nd District and the greater Milwaukee community to honor the life and service of Officer Kou Her, whose life was tragically cut short earlier today.
