"I've seen law enforcement from behind the scenes now for 29 years," said Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel. "I know the honorable amazing men and women who serve our communities every day and it is very personal to me when we lose one of them."
Schimel encourages everyone to do a simple act in Irvine's honor.
"A thank you now and then goes a heck of a long way," said Schimel. "Every once in a while just tell them thank you for the sacrifices they make for their willingness to run into danger when other people run away."
