Fond du Lac Officer Focus of Documentary

4/22/12 – Fond du Lac Police Officer Ryan Williams and his K-9 partner Grendel will be among the heroic police officers focused on in a documentary that will in part be filmed in Fond du Lac. Bill Erfurth is a retired Miami-Dade Police Officer and producer of the documentary Heroes Behind the Badge. A film crew will be in Fond du Lac May 4th and 5th to film a segment about Williams, Grendel and Officer Craig Birkholz. Birkholz was shot and killed responding to a sexual assault complaint on March 20th of last year and Williams and Grendel critically wounded. Erfurth says Fond du Lac residents are invited to get in on the filming during a segment that will be filmed at the Police and Fire Memorial site in Hamilton Park. Williams will also be filmed at the Nation’s Capitol next month when he’s honored as one of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Officers of the Month. Half of the proceeds from the documentary will benefit the national memorial. Erfurth says they are still shopping the documentary around, but hope it will air on one of the cable networks in the fall. More information at:
