A message from WFSE/AFSCME President Sue Henricksen to the members of Tacoma Police Union Local 6, AFL-CIO, in wake of last night’s tragic shooting death of Tacoma PD officer Reginald “Jake” Gutierrez:

“As President of the Washington Federation of State Employees Council 28, I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to you and your fellow officers during this difficult time.
“A loss of any life is difficult but losing a fellow officer in the line of duty is heart breaking.  As a wife of a retired Auburn police officer this impacts me deeply.  I know that all of you go out every day to make this world a better place for all of us. Our debt to you and Officer Gutierrez is one that can never be repaid or honored enough. Our prayers and condolences go out to all of you. God bless you all. In Solidarity Sue Henricksen.”
