The William Freytag Story

End of Watch – March 13, 1961

William (Bill) H. Freytag was a proud father of 5, a full-time engineer at IBM, and an active Reserve Officer for the Rochester Police Department.  He loved his kids dearly and loved serving to help keep his community safe –  service that cost Bill his life in 1961 while working downtown.  He was the city’s first fallen hero, Rochester PD’s first recorded Line of Duty Death.
