Passing of Officer Adam Zieminski

Mayor Michelle and the City Administration, together with Chief Fletcher and the entire Calumet City Police Department, are deeply saddened that Calumet City Police Officer Adam Zieminski died while on duty early this morning.

A highly decorated officer who proudly served our community for 22 years, he was transporting a detainee to the Markham courthouse when he suffered a medical emergency. The detainee alerted nearby Cook County Sheriff’s officers, who quickly responded but were unable to revive him.

We have been in touch with the Zieminski family and our thoughts and prayers are with them, as well as his friends and colleagues. We were all fortunate to have had him in our lives.
