Sauk Village Police Department Board Meeting Report

December 13, 2016 
By: Police Chief Robert Kowalski

Police Service Case Summary:  During the period of 11/08/2016 thru 12/13/2016 the Sauk Village Police Department had a total of 79 arrests.     

CalCom Report: For a period between 11/08/2016 and 12/13/2016 the police department received 1314 calls for service.

Cases of Note:

  • On 11/10/2016 Officers were called to the 1900 block of East 221st. The victim said individuals damaged his rental vehicle which was parked in the driveway.  The victim thought it was his brother who damaged the vehicle since they had recently had an argument.  The victim provided a description of the offender vehicle which was located with the offender as well as several others in the vehicle.  All the subjects were taken into custody.  The Detectives were able to secure charges on the 3 offenders involved in this case for criminal damage to the vehicle. 

  • On 11/16/2016 an Officer took a report from an individual who reported her credit card had been stolen.  When the Officer contacted the credit card company it was determined that the card was used in a neighboring town.  Investigating further Detectives found the victim was trying to defraud the credit card company and had knowledge of the person using the card.  Charges of fraud were secured against the victim.

  • On 12/5/2016 the victim of a domestic violence act contacted the police to report her ex-boyfriend was stalking her.  Upon arrival of the police the ex-boyfriend offender fled the scene.  The offender was driving at a high rate of speed from the area losing control and getting into an accident.  The victim identified the offender who was injured in the accident and taken into custody. The victim was transported to the hospital for the injuries sustained in the accident.  Charges for stalking were approved as well as intimidation charges since the offender persistently called the victim while he was in the hospital trying to get the victim to drop the charges.

Vest Grant:  Officers were recently measured for their vests which should arrive in 4 to 6 weeks.  Once we receive the vests the receipts will be submitted for reimbursement to the Office of Justice Programs, Department of Justice.

Christmas Parade:  The Police Department was invited to participate in the Christmas Parade.  It was a great event and I want to thank Trustee Jones and the Parks and Recreation Committee for the invitation to participate.

Sauk Village Policeman's Association:  A special thank you goes out to the Association who gave the department $1000 for the Shop with a Cop program.  The department is grateful for this and all donations because the money will help plenty of deserving families have a Merry Christmas.    

Enbridge Grant: The Police Department also received a $2000 Community Investment Grant for Shop with a Cop.
