*********Community Awareness******** Happy Friday PH! With the recent news of suspicious incidents/attempted child luring in our surrounding towns we felt this was a good time to bring awareness with some tips to our families in how to talk to our kids about staying safe as they grow and mature in their independence from Mom and Dad. This incidents have not occurred in Prospect Heights but we do not want to cause any of our residents to be alarmed when they see extra patrols through our neighborhoods as our kids walk to and from school. Our officers are vigilant in pro active patrolling to insure the safety of our kids. Please click on the link below to read some safety tips and steps to take if your child is missing. https://www.prospect-heights.il.us/DocumentCenter/View/1539

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, many families in the Prospect Heights community will celebrate Vaisakhi Day. The festival of Vaisakhi began on April 13, 1699 when the 10th Guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, established the Panth Khals. Panth Khals means the “Order of the Pure One.” Guru Singh’s started this sacred tradition by baptizing Sikh warriors to defend religious freedoms. Vaisakhi Day also celebrates the solar New Year and Harvest Day. To honor Vaisakhi Day Prospect Heights Police Officer Pardeep Deol pays tribute to his heritage by proudly wearing a turban to honor and educate awareness of Sikhism. When the Sikh faith was developing during the 15th through 18th centuries the turban was worn only by the higher classes and elites of society. However, a core teaching of the Sikh faith is that all people are equal. As such, it was mandated all Sikhs initiated into the faith cover their heads thus signifying the equal status among the faith’s followers. Because it’s considered respectful for Sikhs to keep their heads covered in public and in religious spaces, the turban serves this function as well. As a side note, Officer Deol carries on his family’s heritage of service in that he is the great grandson of Captain Ishar Singh of the Indian Army. Captain Singh served in the First and Second World Wars as well as the Waziristan Campaign where he won the English Medal of Honor, the Victoria Cross. On November 25, 1921, Captain Singh received this award for valiant effort and devotion to duty during an attack on his unit during the Waziristan Campaign. “On April 10, 1921 Captain Singh was the rank of Sepoy with the 28th Punjabis Indian Army. His unit was assigned to protect an area near the town of Haidari Kach. On that day Captain Singh’s unit was attacked by independent tribesmen that inhabited this region. Captain Singh was Number 1 in the Lewis Gun Section. He quickly jumped into action and began to fight with the tribesmen but was shot in the chest. Through his severe wounds Captain Singh still fought by engaging in hand to hand combat with their attackers after his gun was seized by the enemy. As British and Indian Officers were being killed or wounded around him Captain Singh grabbed two other soldiers, charged the enemy, recovered his weapon, and began to use the gun while heavily bleeding from his chest wound. When his Jemadar arrived he took the gun from Captain Singh and ordered him to return to base to have his injuries attended to. However, instead of receiving medical attention, Captain Singh found a medical officer and began to guide him to other wounded officers. Captain Singh also took many trips back and forth to the river to retrieve water for the officers. On more than once occasion Captain Singh would stop in his tracks when the unit was under heavy gun fire to use the wounded officer’s gun to assist in returning fire. Captain Singh refused to put himself before his fellow officers and used himself as a human shield for a medical officer to get dressings on a wounded soldier. Captain Singh continued to fight through his wounds for over three hours before finally submitting to his injuries after becoming very weak from the amount of blood he had lost and received medical attention”. Captain Singh went on to have a highly successful military career. He was also recognized and awarded the Order of British India, First Class, that carried the title, “Sardar Bahadur. “ The Order of British India is a merit award to honor officers that have given long, faithful and honorable service. Today, Officer Deol carries on his Great Grandfather’s legacy with his vocation and devotion to serving others as an officer in our community. To all the families celebrating today, Happy Vaisakhi Day!
