Winnebago County State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross and other Rockford area law enforcement officials unveil a memorial to a man who spent his life and career assisting others. A dedication ceremony for the new State’s Attorney’s Office’s “Greg Lindmark Training Room” was held inside the Old Winnebago County Courthouse. The space includes a memorial plaque in honor of Greg Lindmark, who gave so much during his life to others. Greg worked for the State’s Attorney’s Office at the time of his death and this dedication ensures that his legacy will never be forgotten.

Greg Lindmark started his career on the Rockford Police Department shortly after he graduated from High School and he had a successful career before he retired as a Deputy Chief in 2011.  Greg’s passion for helping others led him to his second career and he was hired on as Chief Investigator for the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. He worked for the State’s Attorney’s Office until the time of his death in February of 2015. After Greg’s passing, his family started the Greg Lindmark Foundation. The goal is to continue Greg’s work of always helping others, by assisting fellow police officers and first responders who can become victims of mental health issues.  The foundation works to bring mental health, and treatment to the forefront through awareness, education and confidential counseling. Greg was an officer and a friend to all of those he encountered during his law enforcement career. Dedicating this training facility is a great opportunity for our office to remember Greg for his dedicated leadership in our community.
