It will be a difficult day for Milwaukee police on Monday, Feb. 13, when they bury Officer Peter Jerving, their fifth officer to die in the line of duty in the previous five years.
Officer Jerving will be remembered in Brookfield by police officers throughout the state and the country. After pursuing a robbery suspect Terrell Thompson, the officer was shot and killed while performing his duties on February 7.
When a police officer passes away, according to one officer, the sadness doesn’t just affect that person’s family or home agency. It has an impact on the industry as a whole.
At his funeral, Officer Jerving will be buried with all due respect. His family reported that the help from close and far has been tremendous.
The Wisconsin Honor Guard Association’s chair, Michael Herrmann, stated that the devil is in the details while training in an empty church with an open casket.
