Jacksonville State Representative C.D. Davidsmeyer took time on Thursday to honor fallen South Jacksonville police officer Scot Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald, who also served as a volunteer firefighter, was killed in March while responding to a medical emergency call when he was hit by an ambulance also responding.

“To remember and memorialize Scot’s life, this great here, I offer HJR138, to name a portion of Illinois Route 267 from I-72 to Nortonville Road the Officer Scot Fitzgerald Memorial Highway,” says Davidsmeyer.
