Remembering Trooper Borostowski

Governor Scott Walker awarded Trooper Borostowski a lifesaving award in 2015 for performing CPR on a Juneau County man. 

The Governor echoing the poignant reality of losing two troopers from the same class of recruits, "To lose two from one class this early on is really tough for all of those troopers... and obviously for anyone in law enforcement in this state," adding he plans to be in Sparta Monday to pay his respects.

You may remember Trooper Trevor Casper was shot and killed in Fond du Lac back in 2015.

Both Casper and Borostowski graduated in 2014 together from the same class of State Patrol Recruits.

Visitation will be at Sparta's High School from noon to five, which is when the service will start.

Following the funeral, law enforcement and military honors will be held in the school parking lot. Borostowski served time in the Wisconsin National Guard.

We will provide coverage of the visitation and funeral online on WXOW.com along with our Live at Five, 6pm Report, and 10pm Report.
