About this Event
Corporal Michael Middlebrook was shot and killed Oct. 1, 2017 when he and another officer responded to a shooting at a north Lafayette convenience store.
Michael served as an MP in the United States Army, and after his discharge, he pursued his dream of being a police officer. Michael graduated from Calcasieu Parish Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy, where he received an award for marksmanship. He began his law enforcement career with the Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office, and in 2009, he joined the Lafayette Police Department.
During his time with the Lafayette Police Department, Michael was quietly helping the poor and less fortunate residents of the community he patrolled. Michael didn’t tell anyone of his “acts of kindness”, because he didn’t do it for the recognition. He did these things from his heart, knowing it was what God wants us all to do.
Michael’s widow, Adrien says she realized through the pain, Michael would have wanted her to do something good for the community too. “The Middlebrook Foundation is just a chance to be out in the community giving back. I just want to pick up where my husband left off. I want to be out in the community helping kids, feeding families, and doing all of that.”
