Date: November 08, 2016
-Police Service Case Summary: During the period of 10/25/2016 thru 11/08/2016 the Sauk Village Police Department had a total of 27 arrests.
-CalCom Report: For a period between 10/25/2016 and 11/08/2016 the police department received 599 calls for service.
-Cases of Note:
On 10/30/2016 the Complainant/Victim reported to the police that her child's father had not returned her son as ordered by the courts. The father/offender was 2 days late in returning their son and was refusing to bring him back. Attempts were made by the department to call the father but officers were unable to make contact. The son was eventually dropped off at a mutual site and returned to the mother. The detectives working with the Cook County Sheriff's Office were able to locate and arrest the offender. The Detectives then working with States Attorney Officer were able to secure charges on the offender.
-Political Activity: Since we are in the heart of the political season both federal, state and soon to be local elections I would like to take this opportunity to clarify that the Sauk Village Police Department is a non-partisan, apolitical organization that does not endorse any political party or person running for a political office. Being employees of the Village we will abide by the current Sauk Village Employee Handbook which states under Article 5, Section 6, "An employee may not participate in political activities during work hours or when otherwise engaged in the performance of official duties. No employee shall engage in any political activity while wearing a uniform required by the Village. Unless restricted by State or Federal law, an employee may participate in political activities on personal time. An employee of the Village elected to a position in the Village shall be terminated on the first Monday following the election".
I want to be clear as a Police Department we will not engage in any political activities and will enforce the laws to their fullest extent for anyone engaging in illegal political action. If you have any information on this please call the Police Department and report it accordingly.
-Halloween: The Police Department was invited to participate in the Halloween Parade and Trunk and Treat. It was a great event and I want to thank Trustee Jones and the Parks and Recreation Committee for the invitation to participate.
