Trooper Casper Memorial Dedication Today
State Attorney General Brad Schimel says he hopes the public will attend today’s dedication for a memorial bench and garden that pays tribute to State Trooper Trevor Casper. It’s in the 100 block of North Berger Parkway in Fond du Lac where Casper was killed in a shootout with a bank robbery and murder suspect in March of 2015. It was Casper’s first day going solo on the job. Schimel says they aren’t getting as many recruits for law enforcement jobs these days. He says it is very difficult to attract young people into the profession of law enforcement right now because of all the scrutiny they are under. The ceremony is at noon. The public is asked to park in the Sabish Middle School parking lot or the Forest Plaza Shopping Center parking lot in front of Home Depot.
