COMMUNITY UPDATE AND VIDEOS: The Alsip Police Department shared video footage today from the Oct. 3 event where an Alsip PD officer responding to drag racing in a residential area shot an offender who disobeyed orders, drove his vehicle at the officer, and hit two squad cars. The offender, Jamal Campbell, 25, last known address of Chicago, had a history of violence and a warrant for dangerous drugs in Indiana. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office has charged the offender with one count of Attempted Murder and two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Motor Vehicle. "Motor vehicles are deadly weapons, and offenders everywhere from New York to Europe have used them to drive at, injure, and kill hundreds of innocent people in just the last two years alone," said Alsip Police Chief Jay Miller. Illinois law protects the right of individuals and officers to defend themselves using force to prevent death or great bodily harm, and no Alsip police officer has been charged with any crime. The offender sustained two gunshot wounds and was in stable condition Oct. 3 at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. "The offender chose to endanger families' lives when he chose to race in their neighborhood, he chose to ignore lawful police commands, and he chose to drive his vehicle at our officer. Those choices the offender made put several lives in danger that night, including his own," Chief Miller said. The Alsip officer who protected himself from the offender has returned to work, as has his partner. This was their first officer-involved shooting, and they have good records with the department and have received commendations for their work over the years. "We thank everyone for their outpouring of support as we all work together to serve, protect, and keep our community safe," Chief Miller said. "Our department is committed to transparency, and we're grateful to now be able to share the footage with our community, the media, and general public."

Requests for information can be send to Chief Jay Miller at jmiller@villageofalsip.org. This information update is based on an ongoing investigation that is evolving as forensic evidence is analyzed, witnessed are interviewed, and physical and electronic records are reviewed. The Alsip Police Department’s understanding of the facts and circumstances may change as additional evidence is collected.

COMMUNITY UPDATE: DRIVER CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER AND AGGRAVATED ASSAULT The Cook County State's Attorney's Office has charged Jamal Campbell, 25, last known of Chicago, with one count of Attempted Murder and two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Motor Vehicle. These charges come after Campbell disobeyed Alsip police orders, drove his vehicle at an officer, and hit two squad cars on Wednesday. A huge thank you to everyone for the prayers, kind words, and outpouring of support. We're so honored to serve and protect such a great community. #AlsipStrong

COMMUNITY UPDATE: The following information is based on a preliminary and ongoing investigation that is evolving as investigators analyze forensic evidence, interview witnesses, and review physical and electronic records. The Alsip Police Department’s understanding of the facts and circumstances may change as additional evidence is collected. An Alsip Police officer responding to drag racing in a residential area shot an offender who disobeyed orders, drove his vehicle at the officer, and hit two squad cars. The driver has been identified as Jamal Campbell, 25, who had a history of violence and a warrant for dangerous drugs in Indiana. Campbell sustained two gunshot wounds and is in stable condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. The officers sustained minor injuries. At about 2:04 a.m. Wednesday officers saw a silver Dodge Challenger and black Cadillac drag racing in the David Estates neighborhood of Alsip. Officers investigating the reckless driving searched for the vehicles and pulled into the Midpointe Apartments parking lot at the 4000 block of 115th Street just over the Chicago border. They found the Cadillac with two occupants in the parking lot. The Cadillac was idling and facing the officer’s squad. The officers exited their vehicle and issued commands to Campbell and the passenger to raise their hands. Campbell disobeyed the officers’ orders and drove the Cadillac towards one of the officers, who was standing in between his squad and a row of parked cars. The officer fired several rounds at the offender, as the officer was unable to move to cover. The Cadillac ran into vehicles parked at the complex as well as the squads. The officer administered medical aid to Campbell until an ambulance arrived. Illinois law protects the right of individuals and officers to defend themselves using force to prevent death or great bodily harm. As is standard protocol for all officer-involved shootings, the officers are on administrative leave pending the results of an investigation. This is the first officer-involved shooting for both officers. They have good records with the department and have received commendations for their work over the years. The Chicago Police Department is investigating the shooting, which happened in its jurisdiction. Alsip Police Chief Jay Miller has also requested an independent review by the Illinois State Police to avoid any appearance of a potential conflict of interest. This is an ongoing investigation, and The Alsip Police Department will share additional information as it becomes available. Those with information are encouraged to contact the police department tip line at 708-385-6902 Ext. 272. Requests for information can be send to Chief Jay Miller at jmiller@villageofalsip.org. -###-

Proud of our Officers Michael Pantoja and James Brongiel, who received a Meritorious Service Award today from Chief Jay Miller and Deputy Chief Shawn Schuldt! In April a victim reported that her boyfriend damaged her vehicle and sent messages threatening to kill her. Officer Pantoja arranged to provide the victim with an escort to her vehicle when she left work that day. When Officer Pantoja arrived to ensure her safety, he observed the boyfriends’s vehicle in the area. Officer Pantoja radioed to nearby Officer Brongiel to check on the vehicle. The officers approached the vehicle and took the boyfriend into custody after a brief struggle. They recovered a loaded handgun and knife. The offender was charged with a felony - Possession of a Firearm by a Felon - as well several misdemeanors. Join us in thanking Officers Pantoja and Brongiel for their service and great work protecting this community we call home.

And the school year has officially begun! We've been out at all schools and enforcing traffic laws to help families get there safely, writing 16 speeding citations between 6 and 8:30 a.m. alone. But we can't always be there - when 911 calls come in our officers sometimes have to pull off a school detail. You're a vital part to the safety of our community, so please remember to slow down and follow traffic signs. Families, please follow schools' drop-off line policy and only cross the street at crosswalks with crossing guards. Avoid parking on the east side of Kolin Ave. for picking up and dropping off children. Thanks in advance for your help in keeping everyone safe! #ItTakesAVillage
