We want to offer our deepest condolences to Officer Garza who lost his partner K-9 "Vito" last night. Vito was a 2 year old German Shepherd/Malinois mix. Vito became ill over the weekend and underwent emergency surgery Monday morning. Unfortunately, Vito passed away due to complications from surgery last night. His Handler Officer David Garza is heartbroken. Vito joined the department this past April and began training with Officer Garza in June. They recently graduated training on October 6th and began service to the City and its Citizens. Vito will be sorely missed by Officer Garza and the entire Chicago Police department family.

CPD Video Series Presents : A look back at the Gold Star Regatta On Saturday, July 29, 2017, the Chicago Police Sailing Association in conjunction with the Chicago Area Sail Association hosted their first annual Gold Star Regatta at the Jackson Park Yacht Club. In addition to a competitive distance regatta, the event will include a family friendly post-race party with beverages, local food trucks, entertainment and much more. Activities throughout the day will benefit families of first responders who have fallen in the line of duty or have been catastrophically injured. The Gold Star Regatta is a fundraiser sailing race that was created by the Chicago Police Sailing Association to help support surviving family members of Chicago Police Officers that were killed in the line of duty. 2017 is the first year for the Gold Star Regatta. The race is hosted by Jackson Park Yacht Club and is being supported by the 100 Club of IL. All sailors are invited to enter their boats into the race even if you don’t have racing experience. Each registered boat will create a page and URL on the fundraising site where your supporters can donate to your boat or team in support of our Chicago Police families.
