Officers Killed in 2019, 2020 Remembered in Ceremony Thursday

SPRINGFIELD (IOCI RADIO) – Fallen police officers were remembered in a ceremony at the Illinois capital Thursday.

The pandemic prevented last year’s remembrance from being held, so this year’s event included officers killed in 2019 and 2020, their families, and police from all over the state.

Illinois State Police Director Brendan Kelly said being an officer is a special calling and it’s important to recognize the sacrifices of law enforcement.

 

Those honored included four state police troopers killed in 2019, the deadliest year for the agency.
