Patrolman, Mohawk (NY) Police Department
Hi, my name is Bradley Morse. I joined the Mohawk Police Department in 2009 when I was 24 years old, because I wanted to give back to the community that I grew up in. One thing that surprised me about being a Patrolman is that I’d never expected a mass shooting in our small area. Our Village is roughly one square mile with 2500 residents. On the day of March 13, 2013, a male armed with a shotgun, shot four people in the local barbershop, killing two. He then went to our neighboring Village of Herkimer and shot and killed two other people. On March 14, 2018, the FBI lost K9 Ape when the suspect shot him. I’m sharing this because I want my community to know that even in times that evil rears its ugly head, there is a group of dedicated professionals willing to put their lives on the line to stop the chaos and insure they are protected from those evils.
