The Milwaukee County Courthouse Complex will be closing early for the funeral procession of a Milwaukee police officer.
Employees at the courthouse, county Safety Building and Criminal Justice Facility will be released from work at 4 p.m. Wednesday for the funeral procession of Milwaukee Police officer Michael Michalski, according to a news release issued by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele’s office.
The 52-year-old officer was shot and killed a week ago by a suspect as police tried to make an arrest.
A memorial service for Michalski will be held Wednesday afternoon at the Assembly of God church in suburban Oak Creek. Following the church service, dozens of law enforcement agencies will escort Michalski’s body from the church, past Milwaukee police headquarters and then to Wisconsin Memorial Park, where he will be laid to rest.
Michalski’s funeral procession will pass around the Courthouse Complex and parts of downtown along North 10th Street, West State Street, North James Lovell Street and West Clybourn Street.
The Courthouse Complex will resume normal operations on Thursday.
