Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of Officer Jaimie Cox of the Rockford Police Department. Officer Cox was killed during a traffic stop at approximately 1:00 am on Sunday, November 5th.

Beards for a cause! Normally the members of the Parkland College Police Department are required to be clean-shaven, but for the month of November the facial hair regulations have been relaxed for a good cause. Those officers who raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital get to participate in "No Shave November", growing beards throughout the month and spreading awareness of the phenomenal work being done at St. Jude's.

Today, we unveiled a plaque dedicated to Ofc. Pete McLaughlin. The plaque hangs where all visitors to the department see it. We were glad to have Pete's mother, Hanne, former Chief Von Young, and several officers that had worked with Pete present for the dedication. Pete was very special to our department and will not be forgotten.

The United States flag in front of the Student Services building(U-Wing) will fly at half-staff this week on behalf of the victims of the tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their friends and families in the coming days and weeks ahead.

PCPD extends it's deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Logan Palmer, a sailor from Central Illinois who recently died serving our country.

Our officers look younger every day! Ofc. Bermingham gets a chance to visit with Jr. Ofc. Tyler at the Child Development Center.

As part of the Parkland Fall Welcome convocation, Officer Jacob Brand participated in the Smash Out Hunger charity event. All the proceeds generated from the car smash will go to the Wesley Food Pantry, who have a location on Parkland's campus. Officer Brand originally came up with the idea for the event and we're proud to see his commitment to engaging with the Parkland community and raising funds for a charitable cause!

We are hiring! Come join the team!

METCAD will soon be rolling out Pulse Point app integration for cardiac arrest calls. Here’s how it works: When someone calls 911 for a cardiac arrest, the Pulse Point app at METCAD automatically picks up the parameters and sends a signal to all smartphones with the Pulse Point app in the area of the emergency. If you wanted to help attempt to save a life, you could respond to lend a hand. Nothing would require you to do so if the circumstances did not allow. For further information on the app and instructions on how to download for iphone/android devices, please visit the Pulse Point website at:
