Honoring Fallen Heroes

“Today was a bittersweet day. I was proud to stand with my law enforcement brothers and sisters from across the state to remember the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities. At the Illinois Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony this morning we came together to honor the Illinois officers who lost their lives in 2023 and we prayed for their families and loved ones. We will never forget their bravery, service, and sacrifice. And we will never stop hoping that next year we will have no new names to add to the memorial.” -Rep. Dennis Tipsword
