Service Honors Fallen Officers During National Police Week

On Monday, May 13, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., the Park Ridge Police Department will be conducting "A Service of Remembrance" in recognition of National Police Week. Taking place at the front steps of Park Ridge City Hall, the event pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a Presidential Proclamation that set aside May 15 as National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day, and the week of May 15 as National Police Week. Neighboring police departments will also be participating in their own services of remembrance, which are typically sponsored by police chaplains.
During National Police Week, the Park Ridge Police Department encourages members of the public to display royal blue ribbons on car antennas in support of police personnel. Interested residents can stop by the station and pick up a ribbon, or are welcome to fashion a ribbon of their own.
For more information about the Service of Remembrance, please call Deputy Chief of Police Lou Jogmen at 847-318-5267 or send an email to ljogmen@parkridgepolice.org.
