On Sunday, March 28, LCC Police Ministry Dog Julia (King of Glory - Elgin, Illinois) was honored to provide comfort and support at Illinois State Police District 16 in Pecatonica, Illinois, as the Troopers and their families remembered Brooke Jones-Story on the 2nd Anniversary of her Line of Duty Death (End of Watch: 03/28/2019).
Trooper Brooke Jones-Story was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer while conducting a traffic stop on U.S. Route 20 near State Route 75 in Freeport, Illinois. Brooke served District 16 for 12 years. She leaves behind a loving husband and wonderful family, both Blood and Blue. God Bless our Illinois State Police and their families at this difficult time.
LCC K-9 Police Ministry Coordinator, Corporal Terri Albright, presented Illinois State Police District 16 with a Heart of Mercy and Compassion in memory of Trooper Brooke Jones-Story.
From Illinois State Police-District 16: "We can’t thank Julia, Terri, and Carol enough for their visit today! On a very difficult day, you were all there for us and made our hearts a bit less broken. Words are not enough but know we appreciate your ministry and serving our officers in your very special way."
