Flagpole dedicated to fallen Chicago police officer

May 14, 2011 (CHICAGO)

A new flagpole is dedicated in memory of Officer Michael Ceriale. Congressman Mike Quigley was scheduled to present a flag once flown over the U.S. capitol.

Ceriale was gunned down in August 1998 while on drug surveillance.

Saturday's ceremony was set for 11 a.m. at Horner Park on North California where Ceriale played high school baseball.
