A Town of Brookfield (Wis.) Police officer apparently died of a heart attack while responding to a burglary call Friday night.

Officer Donald Bishop, 32, was alone in his patrol car, when he drove off the roadway. Medical care was provided at the scene.

Officer Bishop served as a full-time officer, firefighter, and dispatcher. He was considered an expert in radio communication. He was hired by the agency as a full-time officer in 2011, reports the Journal Sentinel.

That is very, very sad. He was much too young. It appears when the heart goes at the young of age it is genetic most of the time and nothing can change that. Jeez....live everyday to its fullest...we never know?

32 YEARS OLD. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO YOU OTHER COPS. TAKE CARE.

For Dave, above and all LEOS. As a Forensic Psychologist, and fulltime Prof, I emphasize in my classes that genetics = the seed. Fertilizer, watering, de-bugging insect damage, etc.= environment. LEOS can interdict the heart attack. Avoid donuts, fast food, soda pop, supersizing, Big Mac burgers, bacon and desserts. Take the Real Age Test on the Internet; pay attention to Dr. OZ show; invite wife to do so too. I know what LEOS eat; I attend TREXPO routinely.

I am a police officer and have been one for 24 years now. My heart goes out to this offiers family and the department. Its hard when we lose one of our own. I just wish there was readily available workouts that police officers, especially us older ones that can use that is cfompatible with our shiftwork, and one that allows us to maintain our muscle mass and cardiovascular health.
