Today is a day to remember the sacrifice that our men and woman in blue along with all other first responders died for to try and save the lives of innocent victims in the 911 attack. We remember the innocent victims that were just going to work and living their everyday lives.

The 2018 Chicago Heights Police Department Torch Run was a great success. Thank you to all the CHPD families and friends that either came out and ran with us or watched us along the side walks. Once again, Cop on Rooftop, Polar Plunge and the Torch Run couldn’t be possibly in Chicago Heights without the constant dedication and hard work of Detective Ryan Fitzgibbons-Zurisk.

Hey TORCH RUNNERS! CHPD, family & friends are uniting TOMORROW 6/13/2018 to carry the Flame of Hope for Special Olympics through Chicago Heights. Take part of this awesome experience and meet us in the Walgreens parking lot (Joe Orr Road/Dixie Hwy) at 9:30am!
