“Judy and I are saddened by the news that Sergeant Steve Owen has died today in the line of duty. Our prayers are with Sergeant Owen’s family and our law enforcement community during this incredibly difficult time. The men and women who serve and protect our communities represent the best of who we are. They repeatedly respond to threats to our public safety by rejecting instinct and running toward harm’s way.
