Please accept our most heartfelt condolences for the loss of Police Officer Valadez from your brothers & sisters of theOak Lawn Police Department.
Once again we will provide assistance at Blake & Lamb for this sad occasion. We ask that only those Officerson duty park along the curb of east bound & west bound 103rd in the designated areas (the curb lanes will be blocked off from Kilpatrick to Kenton). All other Officers can park in the bowling alley lot or the bank lot at 103rd & Cicero. We expect a large turn out & will be directing traffic. We will do our best to get everyone in & out as easily and quickly as possible.
For those Officer's assigned to the CPD detail & any other Officers that may need it we will have plenty of cold water on hand, feel free to stop by the Incident Command vehicle for the water. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance from any OLPD Officer.
Thank you for your cooperation, our thoughts & prayers are with our CPD brethren and the friends and family of Officer Valadez.
We are BITCHES IN BLUE. Not like that is a bad thing. We are strong women, with a fierce love for "the job", a fierce love for family, a fierce loyalty for our friends, and a fierce respect and loyalty for our brother's and sister's in blue. We are patriot's, we are warrior's. We are strong women, that fight the good fight everyday. We believe in truth, justice and the American way. We love our country, we love our job, and most importantly we stand for integrity, truth and reality. We are not women that have sat behind a desk our whole career's, we have fought the noble fight on the streets along side our partner's throughout our career's. We fight for life, liberty and the American way. Right is RIGHT.
Yes we are hot, yes we are beautiful, yes we are the police and most importantly YES we are American's.
