He also works part-time in nearby Baden.
Off the job, officer Seng stays busy helping his wife care for their son, Collin, who is non-verbal and confined to a wheelchair.
“My son was born with a partial dilution in his 18th chromosome, which is very rare,” Seng said. “He’s totally dependent on us.”
Right now, getting Collin in and out of the family’s van is difficult, so Seng’s fellow officers and the community are raising money to convert the family’s van into a wheelchair-accessible one.READ MORE: Route 28 Southbound Reopened After Multi-Vehicle Crash
