Reflections for Park Policeman Raymond Earl Walsh

Policeman Walsh, we can only hope that the person responsible for your death lived under a cloud for the rest of his/her days knowing that their actions took your life and lived a better life because of that. Though it is apparent the suspect couldn't be bothered to admit their culpability, I just hope they tried to make up for it.

I get the impression from your picture you were a veteran. Thank you for that service.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Officer Walsh's story was read in Richton Park Police Department's roll call on 9-13-17 to honor him.

Patrolman Walsh, we can only hope that the person most responsible for your death faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next. By true justice, it could be anything, even living with the knowledge that his/her actions caused the death of a good man and that that knowledge ate at him for all eternity. We'll never know.

The picture accompanying this article hints that you may have been in the Military. Well, if you were, I thank you for your service to our nation, but regardless thank you for your all too brief service to the people of Chicago and the North Shore Park District in particular.

God Bless and may your eternal rest always be peaceful, Brother.

It has been 86 years since your ultimate sacrifice, but it will not be forgotten. The North Shore Park District Police was incorporated into the Chicago Police Department in 1959. The CPD will not forget.

On this 84th anniversary of your sad and tragic death, I would like to say Thank You Park Policeman Walsh for your service. The parks and recreation areas of this country often attract people who use them for dubious reasons and make the public’s enjoyment difficult at times. These people put good people at risk and it’s the job of women and men such as you who keep them safe. Though I know your agency no longer exists, your spirit lives on thanks in part to this wonderful website.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother

While doing research into the early history of your Department, I was honored, humbled and privledged to have stumbled upon the story of your life and death. Your funeral was attended by many... a great testimony to your service, as you were both a hero for our Nation during WWI and as a policeman for the citizens of Chicago.

You will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my lad.
