Town of Windermere Media Advisory September 2, 2014: Windermere Police Officer Robert German Homicide Report
Posted Date:






Date:  September 2, 2014




On March 22nd, 2014 The Town of Windermere Family lost a son, a brother, and a hero when Officer Robert German was killed in the line of duty. The entire community came together during this tragic time and truly demonstrated why the Town of Windermere is such a great place to work, live, and raise a family. From the various memorials, blue ribbon campaigns, and outpouring of support, the Town came together and honored our fallen hero. Although this report will bring closure to this criminal case, our memories of Officer Robert Robbie German and support for his family will survive.


The Town of Windermere and Windermere Police Department would like to thank the Orange County

Sheriff’s Office for their diligent investigation and immediate support following this incident.   In

addition, our gratitude and praise go out to those Officers and Deputies that not only assisted that tragic night, but all of those that put on a uniform and risk their lives on a daily basis.


We would respectfully request that Officer Germans familys privacy be maintained.
