The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office will honor fallen Michigan State Police Trooper Paul Butterfield on Saturday, September 14.
Trooper Butterfield was shot and killed Monday night during a traffic stop.
Wayne County Sheriff officers will gather on Wayne County roads and simultaneously run their lights and sirens for 15 seconds in memory of Trooper Butterfield around 1 p.m.
“Trooper Butterfield is a hero to all of us,” said Sheriff Benny Napoleon. “Like all dedicated police officers and firefighters, he was a public servant who put himself in harm’s way to protect others. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends as they grieve deeply.”
