Hero Week Day 7

Trooper Joshua Miller, 34, was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a kidnapping suspect, on June 7, 2009. Trooper Miller engaged in a long car chase of a suspect who took a 9-year-old boy from his mother at gunpoint.

While attempting to approach the car and rescue the boy, Trooper Miller was shot several times.

“He was a man that longed for police work and the action that went with it. He was well trained and took his training seriously. He was a friend and brother to everybody here at the Swiftwater station.”

“On Sunday June 7, 2009, there would be no compromise of duty. Evil was met with bold courage and an unrelenting will to do what must be done.”

Let’s get it done on the last day, CFers!

    I was truly an honor to attend Hero Week.

    Chris and Matt…words can not express what it means for you to honor members of law enforcement who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

    To the ‘warriors” who attended this week, a HUGH Thank You! It was inspirational to see all of you participating in the workouts honoring our heroes.

    To see the determination and focus in your faces and knowing that your thoughts were to honor our fallen heroes, I was in awe.

    I means a lot to Law Enforcement knowing all of you took the time to not only raise money for the Berks County Police Heroes Fund, but that you also brought attention to the sacrifices made by law enforcement daily.

    You are an inspiration to all…….Thanks again for your support!
