4 Names Added to WI Law Enforcement Memorial

by

MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - 4 names have been added to the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Memorial in Madison. Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says the several hundred people in attendance for the rain-soaked ceremony Friday reflect a strong commitment to those who have fallen in the line of duty.

Those added to the Memorial this year were officers John Gatenbein, Jeremiah Buckley, Agent Arthur Fadness, and state trooper Jorge Dimas. Officer John Gatenbein of the Alma Police Department was shot and killed during a dispute at a bar in November 1922. Baraboo Police Department Officer Jeremia Buckley died in January 1931 from injuries he sustained in a fall.

State Department of Revenue Agent Arthur Fadness suffered a fatal heart attack during a raid on an illegal gambling operation in August 1958. The most recent death was that of State Trooper Jorge Dimas of Amery, who was killed last June in an on-duty traffic accident. This is the 20th year names have been added to the memorial which honors over 250 fallen law enforcement officers.
