On March 28th The Shorewood Police Department welcomed two new members to its ranks as well as promoted an officer to the rank of Sergeant. Mayor Chapman had the honor of promoting Officer James Butcher to Sergeant. Sergeant Butcher during his career at the department has worked for several years within the Traffic Division before doing a brief stint in Investigations. He will now move on to his next assignment as a Patrol Sergeant. Congratulations Sergeant Butcher! Mayor Chapman then swore in two new recruits to the department's ranks. James Welsh and Michael Alvarado are currently in their first week of attendance at the Suburban Law Enforcement Academy in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. At the culmination of their 14 weeks at SLEA they will return to the village and begin our Field Training program this summer. We welcome James, Micheal and their families to our department! The event was very well attended and is bittersweet for the department as a whole. With the new additions to the department, this brought our total number of sworn officers to it's highest total since 2008. A sincere thank you to all that made this possible in order to better serve our growing community.

After exhausting our regular efforts of investigation, we are asking for our residents assistance into this incident. Please note the contact information at the bottom of the post. On February 20th just after 1pm, the Shorewood Police Department responded to the 1100 block of Hamilton Street to the report of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle. The vehicle fled the scene northbound on Hamilton Street. The victim described the offending vehicle as dark in color and possibly a sports utility vehicle. It was driven and occupied by at least 2 males, who appeared to be in their teens or early twenties. A woman unrelated to the offending vehicle assisted the victim of the crash into their home before the police were contacted. She left before officers arrived on scene. We are looking for any home video surveillance on Hamilton Street or Phelps Lane as well as the identification of a possible witness who assisted the victim after the crash. Please contact Detective James Butcher at (815) 725-1460 with any information or video of the possible suspect vehicle and its occupants.

Winter Parking Reminder As winter has progressed we find it necessary to remind our residents about the parking ordinance. This is a public safety issue for all of us. If snow and ice are not removed from the roadway, it makes rendering emergency services more difficult. To insure we are able to respond in the safest and most efficent manner if snow is in the forecast have your vehicle removed from the street. The ordinance is shown below. 11-1311. PARKING DURING SNOW FALL: It shall be unlawful to park any motor vehicle on any street in the village when snow shall have accumulated to the depth of two inches (2") or more on such street from immediately following said accumulation until the removal of the same.

The Shorewood Police Department proudly announces the addition of our new canine "Rookie" to our ranks. Rookie comes to us from Slovakia through a generous donation from Will County States Attorney Jim Glasgow. Both he and Officer John Coldwater received their initial training at Shallow Creek Kennels in Pennsylvania. Upon graduation last month they received their national and state accreditation and will continue training throughout Rookie's career. Rookie is a German Short-haired Pointer and both he and Officer Coldwater will assist the department in drug interdiction as well as area and article searches. The department is looking forward to a long and prosperous career for Rookie as we revitalize our canine unit.
