In an emotional and moving tribute, Chester police officer and volunteer firefighter James I. Brockmeyer was honored on Oct. 28 with the dedication of the Chester Memorial Park and “James I. Brockmeyer Memorial Highway.”

Brockmeyer died Oct. 28, 2016 from critical injuries sustained after his squad car crashed during a vehicle pursuit of a suspect on Palestine Road north of the Gravel Creek Bridge on Chester’s north side.

He was 22 years old and only 10 months into his career at the Chester Police Department.

“The loss one year ago was shocking and heartbreaking to all of us,” said Chester Police Chief Ryan Coffey. “Before you know it, our duties, our obligations to serve and protect came calling, requiring us to return to regular business — to perform as we had before, with the same high standards as have always been expected of us.
