Remembering A Lost Officer

Again we reflect on an Officer who gave his life serving with the United States Park Police.

September 25 marks the anniversary of the loss of Officer Michael Petrella.

Officer Petrella was killed in a motorcycle accident on Memorial Bridge in Washington, DC, during a period of rain. His motorcycle struck the side of a car next to him. He was transported to George Washington Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Officer Petrella had served with the agency for 6 years. He was survived by his wife, two sons, and mother.
