Thank you to all that helped to make this year’s Annual Death Benefit Golf Outing a huge success. All of you who purchased raffle tickets, came out and golfed, or donated to the outing in some way are owed a huge thank you! I would especially like to thank all of the sponsors from this year’s outing. Their show of support for us is amazing. Below are all of the sponsors. Please, if you should ever need any service that one of the sponsors offer, choose them. And let them know you appreciate their show of support. One sponsor that was left off the “sponsor board” is Sheehy Funeral Home. They are owed a huge Thank You!
Unfortunately, I still do not have good news regarding the 3% COLA for those in Tier 1 and born on 01 January 1966 or later. Sadly, we are still being discriminated against due to our status as Chicago Police Officers born after a certain date. We are always told by our politicians to treat everyone fairly, something we absolutely should do without being told to, except we are constantly shown that they will treat us as second-class citizens. More of their do as I say not as I do routine. Below are two letters, one addressed to the Governor and the other addressed to State Senator Rob Martwick, the lead sponsor on the CFD’s COLA birthdate removal bill. That bill (HB2451) passed easily and was signed by Governor Pritzker in April of 2021. We are continuously looked upon to be all things to the City. Every day more and more duties are added for the Police to be responsible for, all while being Monday night quarterbacked by everyone and their brother and treated as a disposable resource. I mailed the letters to the Governor and Senator Martwick approximately 3 weeks ago, and as of 27 June 2022, I have not heard anything from either one.
Please keep yourself and all those around you safe.
Thank you all,
Congratulations to the newest members of the Chicago Police Sergeants’ Association that started their Sergeant careers in May. We look forward to working with them and wish them all the best in their new assignments.

Calling all Chicago police retirees !
The 90th Annual Chicago Police Department St. Jude Memorial March will take place Sunday, 1 May 2022. Chicago Police Retirees have again been given their own marching contingent and area to assemble to be represented here, as in the past. All retirees are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in this time honored tradition to, ‘Honor Our Fallen.’
Retirees will meet and assemble on Museum Campus Drive (road just east of Soldier Field) and Solidarity Drive (road just north of the reviewing stand) in preparation for the march. Extended family members and friends are welcome to view the march from the west curb of Museum Campus Drive along the path of the march. The march will progress South on Museum Campus Drive to Waldron Dr. and ‘steps off’ promptly at 0800 hrs.
Since retirees are assigned to march at the beginning of the parade within the first few positions, normally behind the Gold Star family contingent, it is advised to arrive by 0700 hrs., to allow time to walk to the assembly area.
Parking will be provided at lots adjacent to Soldier Field. Follow the signs and the traffic detail that will direct you to the parking. Note that there will be NO parking or drop-off’s available outside the area of the parking garages. Handicapped individuals are encouraged to use the nearby handicapped provided spaces within the parking facilities.
We ask that you again join your fellow members in the ‘oldest and proudest’ tradition of the Chicago Police Department. Our continued participation in that ‘Thin Blue Line’ continues to send a message to the Gold Star Family members that the sacrifice of their loved one will always be remembered and we hold true to our dedication and commitment to them that…
