Rockford Scanner sends our condolences

From the BPD:

It is with deep regret the Boone County Sheriff’s Office announces the sudden passing of Deputy Scott Bowers, age 37. On Thursday, April 30, 2020, Deputy Bowers suffered an apparent heart attack while working at home.

Deputy Bowers, a 12 year veteran, spent most of his law enforcement career working as an undercover narcotic detective for the Sheriff’s Office and as a member of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Task Force.

The members of the Boone County Sheriff’s Office offer our deepest condolences to the Bowers family. We ask that you keep the Bowers family and our law enforcement family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

Rest easy hero, your watch has ended. We’ll hold the line from here.
