Chicago Police Officer Thor Soderberg was widely respected for the work he did training new officers and for the work he was doing to help address Chicago’s serious youth violence problem. He was killed Wednesday in the line of duty. He had an indirect connection to partners at the University of Chicago Crime Lab. He is very much missed.
The Chicago Community Trust has established the Thor Soderberg Fund – Connecting Youth with Nature fund in his memory. Those so moved can donate online by clicking here.
