Cincinnati OH –
Per a recent press release, the Cincinnati Police Department announced they located a deceased Cincinnati police officer at 2084 Eden Park Drive just after noon today. A death investigation is being conducted in conjunction with Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.
In the press release, Chief Eliot Issac announced that the officer has been identified as Sergeant Arthur T. Shultz, who was a 28 year veteran and a very well-respected member of the Cincinnati Police Department.
We here at The Officer Next Door extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Cincinnati Police Department and their blue family.
Unfortunately, this December has proven to be like many in the past. Suicides and violence toward police officers generally increase during the holiday season.
If ruled a suicide, Sergeant Shultz’ death would be the 15th reported law enforcement suicide in the month of December according to http://www.wearebluehelp.org which reported 14 suicides as of December 19th.
We want to encourage all first responders to watch after each other during this holiday season. Please reach out if you are in need of help and be safe.
