A large crowd of officers, supporters, friends and Gold Star Family members turned out to remember and honor 574 fallen Chicago police heroes at last night’s Candlelight Vigil. The weather was warm and beautiful as the names were read aloud in the glow of blue lights in memory of our fallen officers. Prior to the Vigil, the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation hosted the Gold Star Families and supporters of the CPMF at a private reception in Soldier Field’s United Club. See below for a link to featured speaker Cullen Gordon’s remarks and other media coverage.
