On August 15, 2021, while serving a search warrant, Modesto Police Officer Michael Rokaitis was shot by a barricaded subject inside of a residence as Michael’s team was clearing a home in northeast Modesto.
Michael was struck in the abdomen during the incident and is currently in critical, but stable condition.
Many from our community have reached out asking how they can help. A fundraising campaign has been established for Michael’s family so they can stay by his side during his recovery and cover unexpected expenses that may arise because of the anticipated long recovery.
On behalf of the Rokaitis family, we would like to send a heartfelt thank you for the love and support during this time. Please continue to keep Michael and his family in your prayers.
