Information provided by Calumet City Police

CALUMET CITY, Ill. (December 10, 2020) – The visitation for Calumet City Police officer Adam Zieminski will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 13 at Smits Funeral Home, 2121 Pleasant Springs Lane, Dyer, IN. Services will follow at 3:00 p.m. and a law enforcement walk-through begins at 4:00 p.m. A vehicle procession will immediately follow from the funeral home through Calumet City.

Officer Zieminski died due to a medical emergency while on duty on the morning of December 7 while transporting a detainee. “The detainee alerted nearby Cook County Sheriff’s officers, who quickly responded with life-saving efforts, before he was transported to South Suburban Hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased,” Calumet City Police said in a press release.

Zieminski procession route

After leaving Smits Funeral Home in Dyer, the procession will:

  • Start west on U.S. 30 to Glenwood Dyer Road in Lynwood
  • Travel north on Burnham Avenue through Lansing to Pulaski Road in Calumet City
  • Turn west on Pulaski Road, past Thornton Fractional North High School, where Officer Zieminski graduated
  • Proceed south on Torrence Avenue, then east on Michigan City Road
  • Travel south on Burnham Avenue through Lansing, taking the same route back to Smits Funeral Home

The procession will travel through Lansing on a nearly identical path to that of South Holland Firefighter Dylan Cunningham’s procession on October 7. Unlike Cunningham’s, however, the procession will come through Lansing a second time heading south.

Local residents are welcome to honor the procession as it passes by their home or business. Area police departments interested in participating in the procession should contact Sgt. Kevin Rapacz at 708-868-2400, ext. 8428 or email [email protected].

A GoFundMe has been set up for Officer Zieminski’s two daughters. Within days of its start, it has already exceeded its goal of $10,000. The page is available here.
