Emotional Send-Off for Officer Brandon Baranowski

July 21st, 2016 by milwaukeepolice

It was an extremely uplifting and emotional morning at Froedtert Hospital as Milwaukee Police Officer Brandon Baranowski was discharged on July 20. The District Six Officer was injured on July 17 when he was shot on Milwaukee’s South Side. Today, Officer Baranowski walked out with his family by his side and thanked the community for their prayers and Froedtert’s medical team for their work. MPD’s Honor Guard and Motorcycle Unit took part in the send-off. MPD would like to thank all of the local law enforcement agencies for their support today. Here’s to a speedy recovery Brandon!
