I knew Eric when he was still in high school, we dated but lost touch. I live in Colorado now and I cant believe what happened. He was a great and funny person. rip

My prayers are with Officer Eric Solorio and his family. I feel their loss greatly, because I lost my brother also, Officer Benjamin Perez. While there are no words of comfort when there is so much pain, may his family find comfort in the happy memories he left behind. May they also find comfort knowing that he is at peace with our Lord. God Bless them all.

Rest, brother.

Eric is trully one of a kind, I'm sorry we didn't keep in touch after high school. I'm even more sorry that we have to be reunited like this. Eric was a great example of what a fun loving, yet focused young man should be.
To Eric's family, friends and our extended AQPS family, I wish you the strength to continue our mantra of Ora et Labora, just as Eric as exemplified here.

I come to this site almost every day to pay my respects to officers who have fallen around the country. Still, I am always deeply saddened when the loss is so close to home. So much is lost when an Officer is taken in the line of duty. To Officer Solorio, rest in peace, your brothers and sisters will take the watch from here. To Officer Solorio's family, may you take some comfort in knowing that so many people have you in their thoughts and prayers.

Meeting you at 17, seeing us grow up from teens through college then adulthood...
I had to say goodbye to you today. Had I known that evening in November that it would be the last time I'd ever see you, I would have hugged you an extra 50 times. Every encounter I have with an officer- I will give him or her the highest of respect,in your honor and for your mother. Thank you for your time in Chicago and for always making me feel special.
I will never forget you.

Walk with them tonight,Dear Lord,
along their lonely beat...Keep them happy through the night and please make sure they are warm and guide
them to a sheltering door in case there comes a timeof storm...
And let them know though they're not here,my prayers are free from fright...
Because,Dear Lord,

My condolences to the family of Officer Solorio. I'm retired, but it still saddens me everytime we lose a fellow brother in blue. Officer Solorio is in good hands up in heaven with God. I will say a small prayer for Officer Solorio. May the Lord bless you all and keep you safe.

Officer Solorio,
I would like to say thank you for your service to the citizens of Chicago. And to your family, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

every now and then i catch my dad writing a reflection for other officers and it makes me scared to think the worst for my dad. but every day when i leave he tells me i love you and times like these make me think how empty i would be without my dad. when my dad lost his friend, he said that dying was a part of life and that one day everybody will be together in heaven. i hope that you watch over your family, they will know that you found your way to heaven and that you'll be waiting for them when they arrive. your family is not alone and im sure they feel better knowing that youre rejoicing in heaven, and not suffering here on earth. so please watch over my dad and the rest of the chicago police department. GOD bless you and keep you.
