We have just learned of the line of duty death of Officer Ronald Strittmatter of the Lakeshire Police Department and are now assisting his family.  Officer Strittmatter suffered a heart attack at home on January 3, 2015 following a shift during which he was on multiple calls.

Officer Strittmatter retired from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department after 24 years of service and had served with the Lakeshire Police Department for 4 years.  He is survived by his wife and son, both of whom are police officers with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer Strittmatter’s family, friends, and co-workers.
