Michael Williams - Law Enforcement - New York City

Michael Williams
Police Officer Michael Williams, age 25, of the Bronx, New York, died in the line of duty on September 21, 2014, at a hospital in New York City.

Officer Williams was a member of the New York City Police Department. He had 8 months of service. He had previously served with the Dutchess County Sheriff's Department. 

Just before 6:00 a.m., Officer Williams was riding in the back of a New York City Police Department van on the way to an assignment at the United Nations complex. It was pouring rain. The vehicle struck the roadway's concrete center divider in the Hunts Point neighborhood.

A back part of the van, either the door or a window blew open due to the collision and Michael was ejected and suffered fatal injuries. He was transported to a local hospital but tragically succumbed to his injuries.

Eight other officers in the van were injured. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Michael graduated from Arlington High School in LaGrangeville, New York in 2007. He graduated from Keene State College in New Hampshire in 2011, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a minor in Criminal Justice.

He was heavily into basketball in high school and in college. He loved the game.

The New York City Police Department is in mourning over the death of their young brother. Police officials describe Michael as respectful, helpful and well-liked. Still
Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray for
Michael Williams and for
those who have lost him
others describe him as bright and upbeat. He will be forever remembered.

Michael's loved ones are devastated over his tragic death. He was living his lifelong ambition and that was to become a police officer. Michael will be forever mourned.

Memorial donations be made in Michael’s name to the New York City PBA Widows’ and Children’s Fund, 125 Broad Street, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10004-2400.

Michael is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his parents, Michael and Joann.

Thank you for your service to the community, Michael.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray that Michael is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
