Officer Jeremy Chambers, a Cahokia, Illinois, police officer died at 2:08 a.m. on Monday, April 24, 2006, after his police cruiser was hit head-on by a pickup truck driven by a drunk driver.

Chambers, 26, was airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital in St. Louis, where he later died. He was a two-year veteran of the department.

Jeremy was also a volunteer firefighter and a former EMT. He touched many lives.

An investigation into the accident is underway by the Illinois State Police and officials say charges are pending for the driver of the pickup.

Officer Chambers' older brother is a St. Louis County officer and his father is a retired captain with the Cahokia Police Department.

This is the first Cahokia police officer to die in the line of duty.

In Valor there is Hope. Rest in Peace, Brother.
Policeman's 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,
His comforting hand reduces fear to naught;
He makes me walk through streets of crime,
But He gives me courage and peace of mind.

He leads me by still waters in the path I trod,
And He says in Romans I'm a "minister of God,"
He leads me in righteousness as He restores my soul,
For His name's sake He keeps me whole.

When I walk through death's valley, right up to the door,
I will fear no evil, for He comforts me more;
For Thou art with me every step of the way,
As thy rod and thy staff protect me each day.

He prepares a table, especially for me,
As I work daily among life's enemies;
He gives me authority to uphold the law,
And He anoints my position in the midst of it all.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
Each day of my life through eternity;
As I long to hear Him say, "Well done...,"
When I lay down my life, my badge, and my gun.
