Park Forest officer shot in line of duty honored with street sign

PARK FOREST, Ill. — A Park Forest police officer who was critically wounded in a 2016 shooting was honored with a street sign Monday.

Officer Tim Jones was trying to catch a suspect on March 19, 2016, when he was shot twice in his head, WGN's Erik Runge reports.

Jones has undergone multiple surgeries and countless rehabilitation appointments with the hopes of one day rejoining the Park Forest Police Department. He still has a locker at the station. And on Monday, Jones was honored with a street sign: Tim Jones Way.

Jones' father, Country Club Hills Police Chief William Jones, was on hand for the unveiling.

"I have learned that you can not put any limits on what Tim is capable of," said Christopher Mannino, the Park Forest police chief.
