Oregon Law joins community in mourning loss of Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen
The University of Oregon School of Law joins the university and Eugene communities in mourning the loss of Eugene Police Officer Chris Kilcullen. Our hearts go out to the officer’s family members during this difficult time, including Officer Kilcullen’s father, John Kilcullen, a 1983 Oregon Law alumnus and former Lane County Sheriff’s Deputy.
Chris Kilcullen, a 12-year Eugene Police Department veteran who earned more than 85 commendations during his tenure, was tragically gunned down during a routine traffic stop on April 22. A police memorial service with full honors for Officer Kilcullen will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, April 29, in the Matthew Knight Arena on the University of Oregon campus.
