Chief of Police Steven Singer suffered a fatal heart attack after several subjects fled from him near the dam at Lake Lafayette shortly before 6:00 pm.

He had responded to the dam for reports of people trespassing and driving utility task vehicles (UTV) in the area. As he arrived at the scene, the subjects fled from him on the UTVs and he briefly pursued them. He then searched the area for the subjects before clearing the call. He returned home at the end of his shift, where he suffered a fatal heart attack overnight.

Chief Singer had served with the Lake Lafayette Police Department for 20 years. He had also served concurrently in a part-time capacity with the Lafayette County Sheriff's Office for 16 years. He is survived by his fiancée, five children, granddaughter, parents, and siblings.

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.
