Memorial Event

This Tuesday, some names will be added to the wall:
  • Please join the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation this Tuesday, August 25, 12:00 PM, at Gold Star Families Memorial and Park

    At that time, the CPMF will pay tribute to three fallen Chicago police officers whose deaths span several decades by adding their names to the memorial wall. The names of Chicago police officers Laubet Zaccard (7/23/1946), Charles Stine (4/21/1952) and John Lynch (12/19/1969) will be displayed for the first time and will join an honor roll of 574 other Chicago police heroes who were killed or died while serving their city. The additions come as the result of research conducted by volunteers who interview surviving family members and ancestors and comb over old police reports, news accounts and pension board files to determine whether officer deaths were related to their duties as Chicago police officers.

    All are welcome to attend.

    John E. Gordon
    Project Manager
    Chicago Police Memorial Foundation
God bless the Fallen.

It's about time someone recognized coppers who gave their all decades ago.

My only question is when they don't come up with the officers star number. I can understand no pictures on the really ancient line of duty deaths, but no star number?

Why a retired guy on the wall? He wasn't even working for Chicago. Why his name isn't even on the National wall.

Thanks, as always SCC for helping promote worthwhile causes in the department as it relates to our less fortunate, injured or fallen members and their families.

I would only hope that we, on posts as such or similar, show our support by offering positive comments and stick to the topic at hand.

God bless All our fellow First Responders and to SCC for sacrificing their personal family time to offer this venue.

I think the star numbers could be "tricky". They used reissue stars, the older ones were "pie plate" type. Who knows? Does it matter?

Check the bronze plaque that -- used to be? - in the building wall, eye-level, next to a store on Clark St. -- Clark & Lunt, or a little north of there on Clark, east side?

Commemorated 1 - 2 ofc. killed there stopping a robbery, something like that, approx. 1945.

Have not been back that way in ages, but I remember it. Building even still there?
