MILWAUKEE — Memorial services ended Monday morning for Milwaukee Police Officer Kou Her. The 27-year-old was killed after an accused drunk driver ran a red light and plowed into his car almost two weeks ago.

"He never left without me. I never left without him," Officer Chandra Fuller said of her partner on the force.

Officer Her was laid to rest Monday after a funeral and procession. As part of the Hmong tradition, memorial services take place over three days. On Saturday, Fuller spoke emotionally about her friend and brother in blue and her last moments with him.

"I said, 'I'll see you later.' But later never came. What I wouldn't give to get another call from (him)," Fuller said.

Officer Her was off duty when he was killed. He was on his way home from work nearly two weeks ago, when an accused drunk driver plowed into his car near 60th and Capitol.

"Officer Her did not die in vain. He will be remembered as a person who brought (the department) together."

Chief Alfonso Morales said Her became an officer in Milwaukee to make a difference, and although he was only a two-year veteran of the department, his impact extends far beyond those years.
