Chicago Sun-Times: Horses On Parade: Statues To Honor Fallen Police Officers, Raise Money


A herd of horse statues — each honoring a police officer killed in the line of duty — will take up residence this fall on sidewalks all over the downtown area.

The equine invasion is part of fundraising effort by the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, which raises money for the families of slain Chicago police officers.

Each life-size horse — there will be about 100 total — will represent an officer killed in the line of duty.

They will be painted with unique designs chosen by businesses that sign up to sponsor a horse, at prices beginning at $2,500.
