Ceremony Honors Fallen Police Officers


Police from around Illinois have paid tribute to their fellow officers who were killed in the line of duty.

 

The annual Police Officers Memorial ceremonies were held Thursday at the Statehouse.  This year’s ceremony was particularly emotional for local law enforcement, because of the death last November of state police trooper Kyle Deatherage during an I-55 traffic stop.  State Police director Hiram Grau says it’s a somber reminder of the risks that every peace officer assumes.

 

Among the speakers at the ceremonies in Springfield was the brother of Brian McMillen, a state police trooper who died in a duty-related traffic accident near Illiopolis in 2007.
