Sheriff Remembers the Fallen Heroes

2014 Memorial

Sheriff John Zaruba and the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office held a Police Officer Memorial Tribute to honor those who serve as law enforcement professionals and to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the safety of our citizens.  

The tribute was conducted by the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard at 10:30 am this morning at the Police and Fire Memorial located at the DuPage County Complex in Wheaton. 

During the ceremony, the Honor Guard posted the colors as well as presented a wreath at the memorial to honor the fallen heroes. Sheriff Zaruba reflected and honored the 2013 Illinois Fallen Heroes. Additionally, there was a brief prayer and a moment of silence for remembrance.  

Members of law enforcement agencies throughout the county joined us to honor those who have fallen and the law enforcement professionals who serve their communities every day.
