Yesterday, 17 year veteran Delaware State Trooper Richard Deskis was shot in the line of duty in Wilmington while on duty. As of this moment, the investigation and manhunt still continue so that those responsible can be brought to justice.
None of us can truly understand what the men and women of law enforcement go through (not to mention their loved ones) as it pertains to being shot in the line of duty. Some say that it is part of the job. Unfortunately, for these brave souls it is.
We hear that Trooper Deskis is out of the hospital and doing well and we hope he is well on his way back to recovering from his injury.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the members of the Delaware State Police and all of those in law enforcement in the State of Delaware who sacrifice so much to keep us all safe everyday.
