FCSD remembers Lt. Steve Crerar on the 17th anniversary of his death in the line of duty

The late FCSD Lt. Steve Crerar

(Riverton) – In honor of Lieutenant Steve Crerar of the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, our agency is reminding our employees and the citizens of Fremont County that Lt. Crerar was fatally shot 17 years ago on April 30, 1995 by a male juvenile prisoner while in the line of duty, Captain Ryan Lee said in a press release Wednesday.

Lt. Crerar was transporting a 17 year old juvenile prisoner to the Wyoming Boys School in Worland on April 30, 1995. As Lt. Career entered school property, the prisoner attacked Lt. Crerar and was able to take his service revolver from him. In the ensuing struggle the prisoner shot and killed Lt. Crerar. The prisoner was later captured the same day without incident.

Lt. Crerar was a dedicated Deputy Sheriff, serving the citizens of Fremont County from 1979 to the very day of his death in 1995, he is greatly missed.

    I am sorry for the problem with the previous post. It read, I remember that day, every day. The horror of the death of a coworker who was such a gentleman and dedicated father. Steve remains with me everyday I put on my uniform and go to work. I will never forget him and am proud to have worked for and with him.

    Steve was a very good man. He is much missed. I will always remember discussing with him the transport that ended so tragically. He told me that no one else was available so, he would do it himself. Little did we know that it would be the last time we spoke. RIP Steve.

    I was proud to know and work with Steve. Distill think of him from time to time. His death was a tragic and unnecessary. One. RIP Steve
