SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) – A former Berkeley County Sheriff’s Workplace captain was laid to relaxation on Saturday.
Capt. Will Rogers handed away on Aug. 27 and on Saturday he was honored with a motorcade procession from Moncks Nook to Religion Church in Summerville the place his memorial service happened. He obtained full honors.
“He gave over 30 years of his life to service,” the sheriff’s workplace mentioned. “Rogers survived an ambush assault, within the line of obligation, in 2015 that medical doctors by no means anticipated him to outlive. Even after his retirement, he was an outspoken advocate for the violence in opposition to members of Regulation Enforcement.”
In 2015, BCSO officers say Rogers survived an ambush assault within the line of obligation. They are saying he was attacked from behind and shot by a masked man in Moncks Nook. Medical doctors didn’t anticipate him to outlive.
The sheriff’s workplace says Rogers gave greater than 30 years of his life to service earlier than his retirement and continued to be a robust advocate in opposition to violence in direction of members off regulation enforcement.
Former colleagues say Captain Rogers might be remembered as one of many biggest cops in Berkeley County.
