Joliet, IL – The Will County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies, will hold a solemn ceremony to honor and remember officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

Deputy Michael Queeney, who tragically lost his life to Covid-19 on January 8, 2022, will be posthumously recognized as his name is added to the Memorial this year. The ceremony promises to be a moving tribute, taking place at noon on Thursday, May 18, on the Old Courthouse North Lawn of the Will County Courthouse.

Prior to the memorial ceremony, a special Memorial Mass will be held at 10:30 am at St. Mary Magdalene Church, located at 201 S. Briggs Street, Joliet. The procession to the courthouse will follow immediately after the Mass.

The Will County Law Enforcement Memorial serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by officers who dedicated their lives to protecting the community. It stands as a symbol of their bravery, courage, and selflessness.

This year’s ceremony offers an opportunity for the community to come together and pay respects to these fallen heroes. The event is open to the public, and attendance is encouraged to show support for the families of the fallen officers and to express gratitude for their service.
