The Milwaukee Police Department never forgets those members who paid the ultimate price in service to our community. Today, we honor our fallen brother killed in the line of duty in 1959.

Sgt. Raymond Nencki died October 5th, 1959, at County General Hospital after a two-week fight for his life.

On September 23rd, police were called to 63rd and Capital because of a man behaving oddly, going door-to-door. When approached by police in the alley, the man pulled a gun and shot Sgt. Nencki twice. His partner was able to return fire, killing the man. The suspect was later identified as the man who killed the wife of the vice-principal of Brown Street School a day earlier.

Attending physicians said death was due to an infection that set in almost immediately after one of the two .38 caliber bullets had torn through his colon. Sgt. Nencki received 72 pints of blood in transfusions.

Sgt. Raymond Nencki was 38 years old and had served with the Milwaukee Police Department for 11 years, following his service in the Army. He was made sergeant November 7, 1953. Sgt. Nencki was married and had a step-daughter.

We remember.
