Acting Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Lieutenant Colonel Robert Evanchick is saddened to announce that Trooper Donald C. Brackett died while on duty earlier today.

Members from the Troop M, Trevose and Troop T, King of Prussia stations responded to westbound I-276 at mile marker 351.9 in Bucks County around 11:30 a.m. after Trooper Brackett failed to answer radio transmissions. He was found unresponsive outside of his patrol vehicle from an apparent medical episode. Upon discovering him, members immediately began CPR.

Advanced medical personnel transported him to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in Philadelphia, but were unable to revive him.

“All personnel of the Pennsylvania State Police are deeply affected by this loss,” said Lieutenant Colonel Evanchick.

“Our thoughts are with Trooper Brackett’s family and friends as they mourn his sudden passing.”

Trooper Brackett enlisted in the Pennsylvania State Police in October 2001. He was assigned to the Patrol Section of Troop T, King of Prussia at the time of his death. He had also been assigned to Troop K, Media and Troop M, Trevose during his career with the department.

A graduate of the 110th cadet class, Trooper Brackett was also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He was 58 years old.

You dumb ass. Your comment only serves to prove you really do not know anything and only blog to prove your dumb ass status. The pension benefits to survivors are rightly greater with death on duty. Dumb ass.
DO, you are a piece of filth to say this. God Bless the fallen and the grieving family at this terrible time. May God watch over all Law Enforcement Officers as they endeavor to protect society. For you, DO, to say this insulting statement sets yet another low for you. You should be unquestionably thrown off of this site. You are a rude vulgar punk with no standards at all. DO, you hate LEO’s, you hate military, you hate Republicans, you hate President Trump...for that, you can go to hell.
DIGGING-YOU ARE A WASTED HUMAN BEING-YOU SHOULD REALLY SHUT UP AND CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR ROCK NOW
