Thank you not only to these young men and women, but also to their parents, their coaches, their teacher (Mrs. Caty Hansen...maiden name Curry, as in the CPD Curry Family), and school principal, Mrs. Susan Betzolt (pictured here with the kids). 
24 FEB 2020: Chaplain Kimberly Lewis-Davis, herself married to a Chicago Police Officer, hosted a marriage workshop at CPD headquarters aimed at strengthening police marriages. Dozens of police couples attended, listening to speakers and sharing with a panel of four police couples (two active and two retired) representing a collective 75 years of marriage and over 100 years of CPD service! It was a MOST enriching day.

Dan Brandt had the honor of serving as a judge at the Emerald Society's annual "Chili Cook-Off," alongside Appellate Court Judge John Griffin, Fox News reporter Dane Placko, and 100 Club of Illinois CEO Joe Ahern. Congratulations to the big winner, retired Arlington Heights PD member Larry Nowak and his wife Debbie, for their outstanding chili entry.

Pictured here are Judge Griffin, Joe's daughters and him, Bob Byrnes, and Fr. Brandt.
