MEMORIAL PARK

Gov. Bruce Rauner and Illinois State Police (ISP) director Leo P. Schmitz were among those in attendance Tuesday, Oct. 2, when the Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation held the official dedication of the Illinois State Police Memorial Park, honoring 67 ISP officers killed in the line of duty. Formerly known as Becker Park, it is immediately north of the Illinois State Police Central Headquarters on Lawrence Avenue between Sixth and Seventh streets. The park cost approximately $2.5 million, with funds raised through the Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation. “This memorial park honors the men and women of the Illinois State Police who put the safety and well-being of others before their own,” said Schmitz.  “On behalf of all past, present, and future ISP employees, I want to thank the Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation for building this beautiful park to honor our fallen heroes.”
