Statement on The Heroic Actions of Off-Duty MPD Officer
Statement from Alderman Michael Murphy
I am extremely grateful for the heroic actions of an off-duty Milwaukee police officer who yesterday put his own life at risk to help a citizen in the Third Ward. His instinctive nature to step in helped protect the lives of others who were in the area, and he is a shining example of the commitment our law enforcement officials have when it comes to protecting and serving our community.
I hope the officer recovers fully and quickly, and I wish him and his family the best at this time.
The men and women of the Milwaukee Police Department who responded swiftly to this incident also deserve kudos. Their quick work led to the arrests of two suspects, and I hope to see that justice in this case is served.
