Event raises funds for fallen Officer Rittner's family, coworkers to travel to 2020 National Police Week

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There was a special event held on Sunday to help the family of fallen Milwaukee Police Officer Matthew Rittner.

The Milwaukee Police Association hosted an event at Uncle Bucks in downtown Milwaukee.

All proceeds raised will be used to help offset travel expenses for coworkers and immediate family members of Officer Rittner so they can attend the 2020 National Police Week in Washington D.C. next May where Officer Rittner will be honored.

Officer Rittner was shot and killed back in March while executing a search warrant.

He was the third MPD Officer killed in the line of duty in a 9-month period.

26-year-old Jordan Fricke will be sentenced next month in Rittner's killing.
