His wake will be held from 3 to 9 p.m. Friday (February 16) at Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church at 653 W. 37th St., according to a department release. The St. Jude Police League will honor Bauer at 6 p.m. Friday at the church.

Bauer’s funeral is set for 10 a.m. Saturday (February 17), also at Nativity of Our Lord.

The wake will be open to the public, but the funeral Mass will be limited to law enforcement officers, family, friends and dignitaries, a police spokeswoman said. An overflow area will be available for others.

Interment will be at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Alsip.

The department said a fund has been set up at the Chicago Patrolmen's Federal Credit Union for anyone wishing to make donations to the Bauer family. It said information can be obtained at the credit union's website,
