IMPA mourns the loss of Ofc Ella French. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends, and the hardworking officers of the Chicago Police Department. We stand with you and assure that she will never be forgotten. We pray that the Cook County States Attorneys Office will deliver justice to all who cared about her….

Police Officer Ella French
End of Watch: August 7, 2021

We will never forget the true bravery she exemplified as she laid her life down to protect others.

Please hold her family, loved ones and fellow Chicago Police officers in your thoughts as we grieve the loss of this hero.

Please also pray for her wounded partner, who is in the hospital fighting for his life. We're asking for everyone to lift this officer and his family as we pray for his recovery.

At tonight's city council meeting Chief Cimaglia presented Officer Michael Trojanek (IMPA Treasurer) with a lifesaving award for his heroic actions in saving the life of an elderly woman.

On April 12th, 2021 Officer Trojanek observed an elderly woman with a walker attempting to pick up items that she dropped on the BNSF railroad tracks while, unbeknownst to her, an Amtrack train was speeding in her direction on the track she was standing on. Officer Trojanek exited his squad, ran to the woman, and carried her off of the tracks just in time before the train passed.

Officer Trojanek's actions were heroic in that he not only saved the life of another but that he placed his own life in danger in doing so.

Thank you Officer Trojanek for your service and commitment to the Citizens of Berwyn. You made us proud!

Our condolences go out to the Champaign, Illinois Police Department and the family of Officer Chris Oberheim who was killed in the line of duty today responding to a Domestic Disturbance which also resulted in another member of the Champaign Police Department being shot and wounded.

Officer Oberheim is a hero and he will never be forgotten.

Chief of Police Anthony Cobb Issues Statement on Fallen Officer:

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart I announce Champaign Police Officer Chris Oberheim, 44, badge number 703, passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty. Officer Oberheim was struck by gunfire while responding to a domestic disturbance. His only intention was to serve, protect and help provide care before he was senselessly fired upon and killed.

Officer Oberheim joined the Champaign Police Department in September 2008 after beginning his career with the Decatur Police Department. A true professional and devoted public servant, Officer Oberheim is remembered for his heroism, bravery, and the oath of office he honorably upheld in his commitment to duty.

The Champaign Police Department, and the entire City of Champaign organization, expresses its deepest condolences to Officer Oberheim’s family, friends and loved ones. I also want to express my care and support for all members of the Champaign Police Department who are mourning the passing of their friend and colleague.

We ask that Officer Oberheim’s family, and other Champaign Police Officers’ and their families’ privacy be respected during this difficult time.
