Senate President Statement on Death of Somerset County Sheriff’s Deputy

“I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of  Corporal Eugene Cole, the Somerset County Sheriff’s Department, and all who serve in Maine law enforcement. The tragic death of Corporal Cole serves as reminder of the enormous debt we owe to all who work in law enforcement for the sacrifices they make every day, and the risks they take on our behalf to keep our communities safe.

“As the search continues for the individual responsible for this senseless act, I hope you will join me in praying for the safety of our officers.”
