Chief Lyle’s Statement on Police Officer Garrett Swasey

Police Chief Michael L. Lyle issued the following statement in response to the tragic killing of Garrett Swasey, a University of Colorado at Colorado Springs police officer and Melrose native, who was murdered by a gunman who attacked a Planed Parenthood clinic on Friday:

“The entire Melrose Police Department mourns the loss of our brother officer and native son of Melrose. Officer Swasey graduated from Melrose High School in 1989, along with Melrose Mayor Robert Dolan and several of our current Melrose police officers. This is a tragic and senseless loss of life, as a man who dedicated much of his life to helping others was murdered while performing his duties.

“On behalf of our entire community, I offer my most sincere condolences to the Swasey family, especially his wife and two children, during this impossibly difficult time.”
