Police Officer Stephen Plum suffered a fatal heart attack after having responded to a mutual aid request involving a barricaded subject in the 1300 block of Nevarc Road in Warminster Township during his previous shift.

Following the barricade, Officer Plum responded to several additional non-routine calls and conducted daily performance training with his canine partner.

Officer Plum was preparing for work on the morning of May 16th, 2022, when he suffered a fatal attack and collapsed.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
