CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – United States Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh joins the law enforcement community across the Commonwealth of Virginia in mourning the loss of Bridgewater College Police Officer John Painter and Campus Security Officer J.J. Jefferson, who died in the line of duty Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

“Every day, brave men and women put their lives at risk when they put on a uniform and a badge, and protect our communities,” U.S. Attorney Kavanaugh said today. “These two men are examples of what we should all aspire to be — courageous in the face of danger and willing to sacrifice for the benefit of others. The Department of Justice and our community mourns the loss of these two heroes, and we will honor their legacy.”
