One of the things we enjoy about Facebook is the opportunity to get to know each other. We try to put ourselves out there (the good, the bad, and the ugly) so that you know our faces and maybe remember our names. In return, we get a chance to know you too...by your comments, the photos you send us, getting to meet you during #cornfestselfies, etc. Our Anniversary posts will be wrapping up next month, so we're starting a new get-to-know-each-other series we refer to as the "Hat Series". As you saw in the anniversary posts, just like you, we all come from different backgrounds. So we want to acknowledge the various places, schools, programs, or branches of the military that prepared us for our careers. If you see your Alma Mater posted, please feel free to comment! We'll start with a little #redbirdpride! Chief of Police John Severson ('00) and our last 3 hires-Officer Justin Martin ('17), Officer Mike Bober ('92), and Officer Dakota Collofello ('17) are all graduates of Illinois State University!
