Chetek Police Officer Emily Breidenbach remembered for love of community

The grief in western Wisconsin remains overwhelming where two police officers were killed during a traffic stop last weekend. Law enforcement and the Barron County community is coming together Wednesday evening for a special candlelight vigil to honor fallen officers Hunter Scheel, of Cameron and Chetek’s Emily Breidenbach. The officers have been honored as heroes in their hometowns, where small-town relationships run deep. Joint funeral services for the pair are scheduled for Saturday.
