To all:
Below is the latest at the Skokie Police Department.
-Congratulations to Officer Jeff Riggs who was promoted to Sergeant at the beginning of the year.  He is currently assigned to Watch I.
-The Department hired three new Police Officers, Officer Borys Vargas, Officer Willie Akerson and Officer Ray Duncker, all lateral transfers from the Chicago Police Department.
-Even with the hires above, we are still 10 Officers short.  Looks like the Department will be sending three to the March police academy and trying to hire a couple more off the new list of lateral applicants.
-The Union and the Village started up contract talks in early January.  After half a dozen meetings, lawyers are being brought in to further the talks.
-The following Officers will be honored at the 2022 Retirement Party.  Officer Kert Siemiawski, Sergeant Ron Glad, Officer Victor Paez, Officer Mario Valenti, Officer Donn Breitenreiter and Officer Tammy Jacobsen.  The date for the party will be Friday May 20th at the Old Orchard Country Club in Mount Prospect.  The flyer for the party is attached to this email. 
-Details are still being worked out for the 2022 Leos Outing.  The date is still TBD.  I will pass it along once I find out.
-I also want to extend condolences to the family of retired Dispatch Supervisor Mike Clark who passed away recently.  I personally worked with Mike when I was hired as a Dispatcher in 2004.  Still remember the sarcasm and smile!!
That's pretty much it for now.  Next update will be in June.
Any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions, let me know.  Or if you have the winning lottery numbers, let me know too......
