East Peoria Police Memorial Ceremony

Monday, May 16, 2022

East Peoria Police Officer Henry P. Kounse, who died in the line of duty 91 years ago, will be honored at the East Peoria Police Memorial Ceremony. Officer Kounse is the only East Peoria officer who has been killed in the line of duty. The ceremony will feature live music, tributes to Officer Kounse and a wreath-laying ceremony. 

It will also feature an honor guard detail, and East Peoria Officer Karson Klyber will walk with it during the ceremony. Officer Klyber suffered a very serious spine injury while on duty in December 2021.

The ceremony will be followed by presentation of East Peoria Police officer awards.

The event is open to the public.
