A ceremony is set for Friday, May 10, at 11 a.m. on Holme Avenue to rename a portion of the road in memory of police Sgt. Timothy Simpson.

Simpson, who worked in the 24th Police District, died in 2008 when his police car was hit at Aramingo and Allegheny avenues by a speeding suspect’s vehicle as the officer responded to an unrelated robbery.
