An incredible father, friend, and police officer who was taken from all who loved him far too soon!

Patrol Officer John Hetland was shot and killed while intervening in an armed robbery while off duty at 9:40 PM.

He observed the robbery occurring outside of a bar at 1936 Lathrop Ave and took immediate action to intervene. The subject opened fire on him, fatally wounding him. The subject fled the scene and remains at large.

Officer Hetland had served with the Racine Police Department for 24 years. He is survived by his two children and parents. 

All proceeds of this fundraiser will go to the children of Officer John Hetland. 

Thank you!
