Prospect Heights Police Department News

Great job and thank you for the collaboration and hard work done by officers of the Mount Prospect Police Department, Officers from Major Case Assistance Team (MCAT)and Officers of the Cook County High Intensity Drug Traffic Area (HIDTA) Unit for bringing a violent offender into custody and off the streets!

We would like to take a moment to brag a bit about our Mayor. Mayor Helmer always makes sure our officers are acknowledged for going above and beyond the call of duty and how they show compassion and kindness outside of their “routine” calls. Tonight we turn the tables to Mayor Helmer. We have a family that has made a Bucket List for their 14 year old rescued min pin/chihuahua mix dog, Addison. Addison was diagnosed a week ago with terminal metastatic lung cancer. The family has started a Bucket List for Addison while she’s still comfortable to go along with the list of her favorite things. She has revisited her Wrigleyville neighborhood, gone to Wrigley Field (sorry PH Sox fans...hence the name Addison), driven a police car, enjoyed Starbucks Puppuccino’s, Stan’s Donuts, Chinese food, pizza, bbq, and ice cream. Today Mayor Helmer along with assistance from PHPD Community Relations Officer Conboy and Deputy Clerk Schultheis, Addison was presented with an honorary key to the City of Prospect Heights and bestowed upon her the privilege of being Mayor of the Day! For a puppy we hear has been the Queen of her household this sweet gesture made the family’s two young daughters giggle in delight through the many tears they have cried in going through the process of losing their first family pet. We’ve heard “Mayor Addison” has called for nap times and non stop pizza for everyone in PH! Thank you Mayor Helmer for caring about all creatures big and small in our town!

This morning Officer Deol on met with Lutheran Church Charities on behalf of the Prospect Heights Police and Fire Department before they left with the comfort dogs to offer their support to the community of Parkland Florida. Our deepest condolences to the community, BrowardCounty, the men and women of the Coral Springs/Parkland Fire Department, as well as the students, staff, and parents Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Lutheran Church Charities is bringing the PD's and FD's sympathies with them as well as our patches of support. Please keep this community in your thoughts, hug your children a little tighter in knowing 17 children are lost to another senseless tragedy and talk to your kids on the importance of saying something if they suspect anything of danger that a friend may be looking to place on themselves or others. Let's come together to help this town heal.

Our deepest sympathies to the family, friends, officers, and staff of the Chicago Police Department on the tragic loss of one their own today. Commander Paul Bauer of CPD’s 18th District was shot multiple times while attempting to assist fellow CPD officers after a description was given over police radios of a person that had run from tactical officers. Commander Bauer found the person matching the description that was given and was shot while confronting the individual. Commander Bauer’s ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten.

We want to give a big "THANK YOU" to our Public Works staff that worked hard this past weekend in keeping up with all the snowfall! PW does alot for us everyday but we know they worked non stop to clear our streets to help make travels safe! Thank you PH Public Works! City of Prospect Heights

The Prospect Heights Police Department would like to thank local entrepreneur Martin Dimitrov for stopping by to offer our officers complimentary use of his invention, Snap Clips. So, what are Snap Clips? Per Snap Clips Website, “SnapClips patented technology makes securing and swapping weights Quick and Easy. Our proprietary grip ensures that SnapClips stay locked in place during heavy lifts and repeated drops. Unlike other collars which lose tension, SnapClips never lose their tension and allow you to adjust how tightly they grip the bar. SnapClips are made with military grade kevlar to ensure durability and a long life in any gym. The durable, yet soft, kevlar will never damage bars, plates or your hands.” Dimitrov grew up locally and is a graduate of MacArthur Middle School and 2015 Graduate of Wheeling High School. He came up with the idea while given a school assignment in an Entrepreneurship class under the guidance of Wheeling High School teachers, John Kritek and Chad Scoggins. Dimitrov said the class was assigned groups and he took the lead after working out one day. Dimitrov found himself annoyed at the lack of having clips that worked well to secure the weights of the barbell. He tried a slap bracelet to see if the general concept could work and found using several slap bracelets and Velcro held the weights in place worked better than the average metal clips. Our officers and staff thank Dimitrov for allowing us the use of his invention and want to wish him the best of luck on Shark Tank! Let’s support our fellow Marauder and Wildcat! Check out this week’s episode on ABC 9/8c.
