Officer Michael Langsdorf was shot and killed in the line of duty in June 2019 while responding to a disturbance call at the Wellston Food Market.

Local leaders said they will never forget Langsdorf’s ultimate sacrifice.

“He always supported everybody in the community, supported his officers, was a backup officer for everybody,” said Vinita Park Mayor James McGee. “We also want his family to know that they have become a part of our family now.”

Langsorf’s parents were special guests at the luncheon.
