On the morning of Friday, May 4th, 2018, Investigator Travis Pirtle was promoted to the rank of Sergeant for the Worth Police Department. Pirtle began his law enforcement career with the Worth Police Department in June of 2011, where he served as a Patrolman. In the Spring of 2014, Pirtle was assigned to the Criminal Investigations Unit, where he fulfilled the role of Investigator through April of 2018. Sergeant Pirtle will begin his new supervisory role in the Patrol Division, where he will oversee street-level daily operations. Congratulations on your well-deserved promotion, Sergeant Pirtle!

To kick off the Spring season, the Worth Police Department joined forces with law enforcement officers from nearly a dozen south suburban municipalities at the annual Special Olympics Illinois Spring Games, hosted by Thornwood High School. Today’s event, which is one of 19 held throughout Illinois, features over 1,000 Special Olympics Athletes who will compete for the opportunity to qualify for the Special Olympics Summer Games, held in Bloomington, June 15th - 17th.

Each year, on the first Thursday of May, the Illinois Police Officers Memorial Committee holds an annual ceremony to pay tribute to the fallen officers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Hundreds of Police Officers from across the state lined the streets Springfield this morning to honor the fallen and join their loved ones in prayer. At the conclusion of this morning’s prayer service, Police Officers and supporters filed into the main hall of the Illinois State Library, where they were addressed by State Officials.

At last night’s Village Board Meeting, the Village of Worth said farewell to Sergeant Keith Krummick. Krummick began his law enforcement career with the Worth Police Department in March of 1989. Throughout his early years as a Patrolman, Officer Krummick quickly emerged as a leader and gained the respect of the community, as well as his peers. After several years in the Patrol Division, Krummick was appointed to the position of Investigator within the department’s Criminal Investigations Unit. After serving several years as an Investigator, Krummick stepped away from Investigations and returned to Patrol. In 1997, Krummick was promoted to the rank of Patrol Sergeant, where he served as a street supervisor for daily operations. Sergeant Krummick’s guidance proved to be instrumental in the development of a widely-respected Patrol Division, consisting of new and veteran Officers. In 2010, Sergeant Krummick was selected by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to serve as a Task Force Officer under the U.S. Department of Justice to combat the use and sales of illegal narcotics. On behalf of the WPD family, we want to thank Sergeant Krummick for his 29 years of service. Enjoy retirement, Keith!

The WPD Investigations Division had a great time hosting Cub Scout Pack #3668 for "Forensic Night"! The Scouts learned how to photograph a crime scene, dust for fingerprints, collect footwear impressions, and package evidence.

To our Heroes With Headsets: Happy Public Safety Telecommunicators Week! We are eternally grateful for all you do! Thank you for always having our back!
