Sheriff Washington reacts to Detroit Police Officer Loren Courts killed in the line of duty

“It’s an ache that keeps coming, every time we hear one of our own has been killed in the line of duty, and this one truly hurts. Officer Courts was near and dear to our hearts. He came from a loving law enforcement family and his father worked closely with members of our agency. Our hearts are with all of them. Another hero was taken while trying to protect and serve all of us. We are losing too many brothers and sisters in blue and too many civilians to gun violence. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office sends all our love and support to the Detroit Police Department and to the loved ones of fallen Officer Courts. We are also thinking of the family of that suspect. Let’s come together and lift them all in prayer.”

– Sheriff Raphael Washington
