Add your own fun or personal stories or thoughts about the Yorkville Police Department.
As you might know, Police Week kicked off on Monday. For a little backstory, in 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation that designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice during the week. Out here in Yorkville we wanted to show our Yorkville Police Department that we appreciate their work and service to us. Below are comments from the Yorkville Patch Facebook Page of residents sharing kind words towards the department during this special week. Feel free to add your comments …
