On Monday, September 24th, 2018, the Loves Park City Council approved the hiring of Brady Bailey and Jordan Hayes, for the position of Police Officer, with the Loves Park Police Department. Officers Bailey and Hayes will next attend 560 hours of basic law enforcement training, through the State of Illinois, by going to the Macon County Law Enforcement Training Center, in Decatur.

I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!!! On Thursday, August 16th, the Loves Park Police Department had the pleasure of partnering with Dairy Depot, to host a community gathering and “Ask a Cop a Question”. A huge thank you to Brittany, at Dairy Depot, and Alderman Doug Allton, for helping organize this event and their assistance made it a giant success. We met with a lot of great people, from young to old, and everyone was treated to an ice cream, during their visit. It was an extremely rewarding evening, which helped continue the social impact that we have committed to bring to this community. Having these great community partners are very important to everyone’s success!🍦🍨

OFFICERS, EMS PERSONNEL PRECOGNIZED Earlier this year, local businessman, Robert Shields, suffered cardiac arrest and was found by his daughter, Sarah, who immediately began CPR. Four Loves Park Officers, Eric Jacobson, Nick Mastroianni, Wes Mathieu and Chad Palmer responded to the call. Officer Wes Mathieu was the first on scene. As emotional as it was, Sarah managed to assist Officer Mathieu in hooking up an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) to her dad. The AED was previously donated to Loves Park Police by Mercy Health Systems. As the additional officers arrived on scene, they continued administering CPR, until Metro Ambulance, Lifeline Ambulance and Mercy’s MD-1 arrived on scene. Metro Ambulance was staffed by Paramedic Melissa Eickman and EMT Darren Files. Lifeline Ambulance was staffed by Paramedics Alex Knoll and Spencer Shanks. MD-1 was staffed by Dr. John Pakiela. After some additional on-scene care, Robert was transported to a hospital and after treatment, was eventually released. Robert attended Loves Park City Council's meeting on Monday night to personally express his gratitude to the officers, paramedics and doctor, as well as to his daughter for their efforts. We commend each of these life savers for making our Community a better place.
