Police Car with Lights Turned On

(La Grange, IL – December 19, 2016) How has the new 2016 policing legislation affected our local police departments? The La Grange Area League has invited a panel of local police chiefs to provide their perspectives on this new legislation, including Community Relations Improvement, Police Training, Body Cameras, Uniform Crime Reporting and Gun Reform.

This program, open to the public, will be held at the La Grange Park Public Library Community Room on Thursday, January 26. 2017, from 7:00 – 8:30 P.M.

Participating on the panel are Chief Tom Weitzel of the Village of Riverside, Chief Ernie Millsap of the Village of Hodgkins, Chief Ed Rompa of the Village of La Grange Park, and Chief Joseph Ford of the City of Countryside. Chief Rompa predicts the evening will be “interesting and informative as we have a solid panel willing to share their opinions, however uniform or diverse they may be.”

You do not want to miss this opportunity to learn more about this very important and timely issue. There will be time for questions from the audience. Hope to see you there!
