Officer Tim Jones was shot three times in the jaw and neck on March 19 while responding to a break-in. He was released from Advocate Christ Medical Center and is now undergoing rehab.
Jones, 24, has been on the Park Forest Police Department for less than a year. He is the son of William Jones, the police chief in south suburban Country Club Hills.
The department said Jones has a long road to recovery and his long-term prognosis is uncertain.
