Crime Stoppers Took Time To Honor Fallen Officers
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. On Friday May 8th, representatives of the Lake County Crime Stoppers attended the ceremony held at the Lincoln Memorial Plaza in Waukegan, Illinois. Crime Stoppers would like to thank the men and women behind the badge in Lake County and throughout our great nation for their dedication to keeping us safe.
NEW COMMUNITY POLICING AWARENESS
Lake County Crime Stoppers, Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (LCMEG), and Clear Channel Outdoor have teamed up again creating a new New Community Policing Awareness Billboard with a focus this year on Reporting Guns, Drugs (heroin), Gangs, Human Trafficking, Teenage Prostitution, Crimes Against Children, Violent Criminals, Sex Offenders and Wanted Fugitives. This is the thirtieth in a series of Billboards to promote public awareness. The location of this year's Billboard is on the Northeast Corner of Washington and West Streets, Waukegan, Illinois. This theme ties in with our other Community Policing and Crime Prevention Awareness programs which are annually presented by Law Enforcement Agencies of Lake County. On our streets today, approximately Six of Ten children are solicited for Illegal Drugs (especially heroin), in and around the Lake County area. It should also be known that many young females are solicited to get into the prostitution arena doing sexual favors for money.
This is a call out to Parents, Educators and Concerned Citizens whereas to, BE AWARE, PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, GET INVOLVED, REMAIN ANONYMOUS.
