Trevor Slot - Law Enforcement - Michigan

Police Officer Trevor Slot, age 41, was killed on October 13, 2011, in the line of duty. 

He was a member of the Walker Police Department, Michigan. He had 9 years of service. 

Police Officer Trevor Slot was struck and killed by a bank robbery suspect while attempting to deploy stop sticks on I-96 at 8th Avenue.

The two suspects had robbed a bank in Ravenna, Michigan, and were fleeing the area when they were spotted by on-duty FBI agents who happened to be in the area. The agents initiated a pursuit and were quickly joined by several state and local agencies.

Jesus, pray for Trevor
The pursuit continued along I-96 at speeds over 100 mph as the suspects opened fire on the pursuing units with a shotgun and rifle. As the vehicle approached the 8th Avenue exit Officer Slot attempted to deploy stop sticks but was fatally struck by the vehicle. The vehicle crashed moments later and the two suspects were shot and killed as they opened fire on other officers.

Friends describe Trevor as a good father and a dedicated officer to the end. He is also described as a man of integrity and honesty. 

Trevor is survived by numerous loving friends and family members including his wife, Kimberly and his two young daughters. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Trevor Slot is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
