We Lost A Friend And A Hero Last Night

Last night Lower Burrell Police Officer, Derek Kotecki, was ambushed by a man, wanted in a prior shooting,  after a tip came in as to where he would be, the Dairy Queen on Rt 366.  Upon approaching the killer's SUV in the Dairy Queen's parking lot, Officer Kotecki was shot and killed in the line of duty.

Officer Kotecki was a Lower Burrell K-9 Officer
 The Lower Burrell Police Department is a member of Bull Creek and uses our facilities for training.

Officer Kotecki is survived by his wife and two boys.

Words cannot express our sorrow. Once again we are reminded of just how every Police Officer puts their life on the line day in and day out to help all of us live safer lives.

Our deepest condolences go out to Officer Kotecki's family and the entire Lower Burrell Police Department.
