House Republican Leader Jim Durkin today presented House Resolution 58 to a group of state police officers recognizing the 95th anniversary of the Illinois State Police Department.  
The Illinois State Police Department was formed on April 1, 1922 under the direction of Superintendent John T. Stack; its motto is, “Integrity, Service and Pride”.   Today, the Illinois State Police has 21 patrol districts, seven investigative zones, six operational forensic science laboratories, and five regional crime scene services commands under the helm of Director Leo P. Schmitz. 
As of 2017, more than 60 state troopers have paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives in service to the state and its citizens.  The Illinois State Police Heritage Foundation’s Memorial Park will soon be constructed in downtown Springfield.  
“We recognize the Illinois State Police Department on its 95th anniversary and thank them for their service, and wish them many more successful years,” said Durkin. 
(Pictured left to right front row are:  State Rep. Sara Wojcicki Jimenez, Lt. Col. Danny Vega, Colonel Joann Johnson, Director Leo Schmitz, State Rep. Jerry Costello, State Rep. John Cabello, and State Rep. Dan Brady.  In the back row left to right are: State Rep. Brian Stewart, Lt. Col Jamal Simington, State Rep. Tim Butler and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin.
