Ilinois State Police Lose a Brother, We express our condolences

Trooper_mcmillen

On Sunday, August 28, 2007, the Illinois State Police suffered the tragic loss of one of their troopers.  Trooper Brian McMillen was killed in a traffic accident while on duty as he was responding the a call for assistance from a local law enforcement agency.

Trooper Brian McMillen Isp_3

Illinois State Police Illinois

End of Watch: Sunday, October 28, 2007   

Biographical Info Age: 24

Tour of Duty: 8 months

There are multiple layers of tragedy to this story.  A family has lost their loved one. The entire law enforcement community of the State of Illinois has lost another hero. And this horrible tragedy was  caused by drunken driving.

Every day law enforcement officers risk their lives in situations that few others can comprehend.  The public tends to think about the more sensational circumstances such as fights, shoot-outs, car chases, etc.  But what we often fail to realize is that danger and death can come in many unexpected ways. 

This trooper's vehicle was struck by two other vehicles--the drivers of both of the other vehicles were charged with driving while intoxicated.

Remember to pray for this Trooper's family.  Remember that the dangers we face as law enforcement officers can come in the most "routine", unexpected forms.  Remember that we have to do what we can to perform our jobs professionally and to come home safely each and every day.

Our hearts go out to the family and colleagues of Trooper Brian McMillan.
