‘The department mourns’

The Trumbull Police Department is mourning the loss of 22-year veteran Officer Michael Borucki, who has died following a long battle with cancer.

In a post on the department’s Facebook page, Borucki was described as “an active member of the Trumbull Police Department for over 20 years. He fought a long and courageous battle with cancer, continuing to work as recently as two weeks ago. Our condolences go out to his family and friends. Mike, rest easy now. We will take it from here.”

Police Chief Michael Lombardo described Borucki as a dedicated officer who was well-liked by the others in the department.

“Our hearts go out to his wife and two children, and the department mourns, too,” Lombardo said. “He’ll be sorely missed.”
