After the apparent ambush killings of two Iowa Police officers on Wednesday and the fatal shooting of Gary Police Officer Jeffrey Westerfield on his 47th birthday in 2014, the Lakeshore’s Sharon Jackson spoke to Westerfield’s widow, who is also the Public Information Officer for the Gary Police Department. Lieutenant Dawn Westerfield lost the man who was the father of her children on July 6th. She is still very professional and collected when discussing the topic of officer shootings.
