• Memorial Site for Officer Tom Decker

    Welcome to the police memorial website for the Cold Spring, MN Police Department and specifically for Officer Thomas Edward Decker, who gave his life on November 29th, 2012.

    Responding to a welfare check at an apartment unit above Winner’s Bar, Officer Decker, a 31-year-old father of four, was ambushed and shot. Officer Decker made the ultimate sacrifice as a peacekeeper for the citizens of the greater Cold Spring community. He stands as an immortal representative of police officers everywhere. As Abraham Lincoln said at Gettysburg in 1863, he has given “the last full measure of devotion.”

    In memory of Officer Decker and his sacrifice, as well as an appreciation for the Cold Spring Police Department, we are working to build a memorial in their honor.
