Roselle Police Association “Pig Auction” The Roselle Police Association’s “Stuff the Pig” fundraiser to raise money for holiday ham dinners for residents served by the Roselle United Methodist Church Food Pantry returns again for 2017. In addition to placing “Stuff the Pig” piggy banks at various locations throughout the Village, the Roselle Police Association will auction off five specialty piggy banks painted by local artist Rich Keylard as part of the fundraiser. Last fall, over 100 ham dinners were donated to the food pantry for local families in need through the Stuff the Pig fundraiser. If the fundraiser generates enough in donations to cover the cost of the ham dinners (complete with beans, potatoes and onions) requested by the Roselle United Methodist Church Food Pantry this year, the additional funds raised will be donated to the Illinois Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, 100 Club of DuPage, and Stepping Stones for Women of Domestic Violence. The auctions will take place on E-Bay on November 7, November 14, November 21, November 28, and December 5. Check out our Pigs and auction dates on our YouTube Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NUeA0SqAdg&feature=youtu.be

We will begin auctioning our one-of-a-kind, custom-painted pigs on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. These auctions will be posted on our Facebook page and on our Roselle Police EBay site. We will begin our auction with our custom-painted, special edition piggy bank we call “Pig in Blue,” which is the pig on the far right in the picture. The following is the schedule of our one-of-a-kind piggy banks: * Pig in Blue -- November 7, 2017 * Blaze the Pig -- November 14, 2017 * Patriot Pig -- November 21, 2017 * Super Pig -- November 8, 2017 * SWAT Pig -- December 5, 2017 A special thanks goes out to Rich Keylard of AIREPHIX (Roselle, Illinois) for his airbrushing and artistic design on these special edition piggy banks. All the proceeds from the sale of these special edition piggy banks will assist us in providing meals for families during the holiday season; additional funds will assist Concerns of Police Survivors, 100 Club of DuPage, and Stepping Stones. More details will be posted on Tuesday, November 7.

Now that the Roselle Police Association is winding down our Pink Patch project supporting women’s health, you may notice that some of our employees are a bit scruffy and unshaven. For the month of November, the police department is allowing our employees to do so for another good cause, the “MOVEMBER FOUNDATION” campaign for men’s health. This is a month-long project in which we will allow RPD employees to grow beards and mustaches to show support for the cause. The participating employees have each donated a minimum of $25.00 to go unshaven for the month, with all proceeds going to the Movember Foundation towards Men’s cancer research. If you wish to help support the Roselle Police Association in this noteworthy cause, you may donate at: https://us.movember.com/team/2290509?utm_medium=share&utm_source=dynamic&utm_campaign=copy-clipboard All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. The Movember Foundation (Tax ID: 77-0714052) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Thank you Action Lock and key!

Yesterday we had a very pleasant surprise when Roselle Scout Troup 412 gave the Roselle Police Association a check for $600 for our Breast Cancer (Pink Patch) Project. During the Taste of Roselle, Brady Baker and Tegan Shake sold braided paracord wrist bracelets that they hand made. Both Brady and Tegan decided to give all of their profits to the Roselle Police Association for our Breast Cancer (Pink Patch) Project and the AMITA Health Cancer Institute. Pictured from left to right: Chief Herron, Mayor Andy Maglio, Don Shake, Brady Baker, and Tegan Shake. THANK YOU Roselle Scout Troup 421 for your generous donation.

Today through the 31st of October, Roselle Police employees have been authorized to wear our Roselle Pink Patch on their uniforms. The Pink Patches represent our efforts to support fundraising for the AMITA Health Cancer Institute. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Roselle Police employees want to show support for this cause by wearing Roselle Police specialty patches on their uniforms. Also, our marked squad cars will have a small pink patch logo on the front fenders. There is still time if you would like to also show your support by purchasing a specialty patch or baseball cap. These patches and caps are available at the Roselle Police Department, Roselle Village Hall, and are available on EBAY: Patches: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xroselle+police+cancer+patch.TRS0&_nkw=roselle+police+cancer+patch&_sacat=0 Caps: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=roselle+police+cancer+patch&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xroselle+police+cancer+hat.TRS0&_nkw=roselle+police+cancer+hat&_sacat=0 One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the AMITA Health Cancer Institute to support those afflicted with breast cancer.

October is right around the corner, and the Roselle Police Department is getting our Pink Patch uniform shirts ready to wear. During the month of October, Roselle Police Department employees are allowed to wear a uniform shirt that supports our Pink Patch Project. We are raising funds to support the AMITA Health Cancer Institute, specifically for breast cancer programs. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sales of the patches and baseball caps will support things like wigs, breast prostheses, holistic support programs, massage therapy, and family counseling, to name a few. The patches are still available at both the Roselle Police Department and Roselle Village Hall during regular business hours. The patches are $10 each and the baseball caps are $25 each. You can also purchase the patches and baseball caps on EBAY (the cost is slightly higher to cover shipping costs). * Patches can be found at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Limited-Edition-Roselle-Illinois-Police-Breast-Cancer-Awareness-Patch-/162660852360?epid=17004788654&hash=item25df57a288:g:cdcAAOSwpONZXn0D * Baseball caps can be found at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Limited-Edition-Roselle-Illinois-Breast-Cancer-Awareness-Police-Baseball-Hat-/162641657066?hash=item25de32bcea:g:IpkAAOSw8thZnGWI THANK YOU for all your help and support for this very worthwhile cause.

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 28, 2017 Bond Set at $2 Million for Woman Accused of Setting Fire to Roselle Townhome WHEATON - DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Roselle Chief of Police Steve Herron announced that bond has been set for an Elgin woman accused of setting fire to a Roselle Townhouse and attacking one of the occupants of the residence. Chevaz Odio, 28 (d.o.b. 12/10/1988) appeared in bond court yesterday afternoon where Judge Brian Jacobs set bond at $2 million with 10% to apply. Odio has been charged with one count of Attempt Murder (Class X Felony), two counts of Aggravated Arson, (Class X Felony), one count of Home Invasion (Class X Felony) and one count of Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle (Class 2 Felony). At approximately 2:30 a.m., July 25, 2017, firefighters with the Roselle Fire Department responded to a call of a fire on Circle Avenue in Roselle. It is alleged that at approximately 2 a.m. Odio entered the townhouse and was confronted by a female occupant of the home. It is alleged that after a brief verbal altercation, Odio stabbed the woman several times with a sharp knife-like object and attempted to suffocate her with a plastic bag. The woman was able to free herself from the alleged attack and retreated to an upstairs room. It is alleged that Odio then started a fire on the first floor of the townhouse before fleeing in a vehicle that was parked in the driveway that did not belong to her. The woman and another occupant of the townhome were forced to jump from the second floor of the townhouse to escape the fire. An investigation led to Odio who was taken into custody that afternoon without incident. “It is alleged that in the early morning hours last Tuesday, Chevaz Odio broke into a Roselle townhome, stabbed one of the occupants and then set fire to the home while two individuals were upstairs, forcing them to jump from a second story window to escape the flames,” Berlin said. “Thankfully the injuries sustained by both victims are not life-threatening. This outrageous behavior will not be tolerated in DuPage County and will be met with the full force of the law. Thanks to the outstanding collaborative work of several law enforcement agencies Ms. Odio was identified as a suspect and taken into custody later that same day. I would like to thank Commander Bill Lyons of the DuPage County Fire Investigation Task Force, Detective Dan Torza of the Elmhurst Police Department and detectives with the Roselle Police Department for their outstanding work on the this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Jae Kwon for his work in preparing a strong case against this defendant.” Chief Herron of the Roselle Police Department noted “This is an example of multiple police and fire departments coming together providing aid to the injured, protecting the properties threatened by the fire and to ultimately bring this case to a rapid and successful conclusion with the arrest of Ms. Odio. We thank the officers and detectives of the agencies who assisted by providing outstanding police work during this investigation.” Odio’s next court appearance is scheduled for August 21, 2017, in front of Judge George Bakalis. Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

We are on EBAY! We know we have followers from all over the area who are willing to help us with our cancer awareness patch. So we have decided to put these Breast Cancer Awareness patches on EBAY. Below is the direct link to our patch on EBAY! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Limited-Edition-Roselle-Illinois-Police-Breast-Cancer-Awareness-Patch-/162581054614?hash=item25da960496:g:cdcAAOSwpONZXn0D The patch comes in a bi-fold folder with our regular-printed patch on the front cover and the pink patch and a description of our program on the inner cover. This pink patch is an authentic police shoulder patch.

We certainly enjoyed the Modern Day Romeos and the fireworks on the July 3rd Party in the Park! I hope you were able to enjoy the great weather and the show. As you may recall we had been offering for sale the Roselle Police Pink Patches and baseball caps. We had a young girl (Danielle Horner) who took it upon herself to sell the patches and caps by walking around in the crowd. Danielle sold 14 Pink Patches and 5 baseball caps, what a great supporter we had! A special thank you goes out from the Roselle Police Department to Danielle Horner! (Pictured is Danielle Horner with Chief Herron)

I wanted to remind everyone of our Pink Patch Campaign. The Roselle Police Association is selling these patches and baseball caps to raise funds for the AMITA Health Cancer Institute, specifically for breast cancer support programs. The proceeds from the sales of the patches and caps will support things like wigs, breast prostheses, holistic support programs, massage therapy, family counseling, to name a few. The patches are $10.00 each and the baseball caps are $25.00. We will be selling these pink patches and baseball caps at all of our summer events. In addition, they are available for purchase at the police department and Village Hall. Special thanks to Jimmy John’s of Roselle who has decided to give a coupon for a FREE Sub Sandwich to anyone who purchases a pink patch baseball cap, the FREE Sub coupon can be redeemed at either of the Roselle Jimmy John’s locations (1450 E. Lake Street or 37 E. Irving Park Road). Hope to see you out at the July 3rd fire works!
