A very sad and tragic day for the Illinois State Police as they mourn the loss of a fellow trooper who was killed in the line of duty. Trooper Christopher Lambert was killed by a vehicle while on patrol on Interstate 294. He stopped to help out at an accident where he lost his life. He leaves his wife and a 1 year old daughter who will not know who her father is because he was killed in the line of duty.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

RIP Trooper Christopher Lambert


January 13, 2019


My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow State Trooper.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, although our uniforms may be a different style and vary in color, a badge, shield or star may be pinned upon our chest. Our areas of enforcement may vary but our goals are the same, to Serve and Protect our communities. We consist of many different agencies from across the nation, for we are: Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff’s Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Police Officers, College Campus Police Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, college campuses, county roads, state highways, state prisons, county jails, state parks and the United States Borders. Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, the thin blue line of protectors, brothers and sisters bonded together by HONOR, SERVICE and PRIDE. Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families.
Daily our position is clear that we will Serve and Protect our communities without faltering and with no hesitation. Daily we show pride in our chosen profession LAW ENFORCEMENT, for we willingly walk the line of good over evil facing the unknown with courage keeping our trust and our faith in GOD.
We know that evil roam these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
ALL LIVES MATTER - LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD BE RESPECTED - If we don’t respond to that call for help, or investigate that suspicious subject(s), or stop for that stranded motorist, or rush to that call of shots fired, then who will?
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens in the State of Illinois with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I’m proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer like you did.
I’m proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I’m proud to have Served and Protected my community as you did.
I’m proud to call you my BROTHER!
I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do................... Serving and Protecting your community with Honor and Pride making a better and safer place for us all.
Trooper Lambert status....................
Trooper Lambert status....................

Attention All Units...............Illinois State Police, Trooper Christopher Lambert I.D. # 6527, having served the citizens in the State of Illinois with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
