Emergency services memorial vandalized in Fond du Lac

900-pound granite memorial knocked off its base

A reward is being offered for information leading to the person who vandalized a memorial dedicated to emergency services personnel who died in the line of duty.

The 900-pound granite memorial in Fond du Lac was knocked off its base and the firefighters’ tablet was damaged, according to police.

Fond du Lac Police Capt. Steve Klein said the memorial is somewhat of a sacred place for public safety, especially law enforcement, which lost three officers, most recently Craig Birkholz.

The memorial has been sent to Milwaukee for repairs which could cost $500 to $1,000.

Fond du Lac Memorials is offering a $100 reward for information in the case.
