As one of the current members of the North Chicago Police Department for the past thirty two years, I wish to honor Officer David T Doering.
At the start of my career, I had the opportunity to speak to some of Officer Doering(s) co-workers, who stated that he always had a smile on his face and what they described as having good sense of humor.
I wanted the family members to know that Officer Doering has not been forgotten and his tribute "still lives on" the wall of the briefing room.
Officer David T. Doering is consider a true "HERO" in my eyes for ultimate sacrifice that occurred on May 4th 1980 (Sunday).

May God bless Officer David T Doreing and his family members.
