CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

On Monday December 11, 2017 the Prospect Heights City Council Meeting, the Prospect Heights Police Department honored Officer of the Year Officer Kevin Lange. Several police officers were also honored for going above and beyond the call for duty.

Officer Kevin Lange was named Monday, December 11, 2017 as the 2017 Prospect Heights Police Officer of the Year.

Nominations for the award are accepted from the staff and command of the Prospect Heights Police Department. Officer Kevin Lange has served as a member of the Prospect Heights Police Department since 2012.

Noted for his affability and easy going demeanor, Officer Kevin Lange has served with the Prospect Heights Police Department as an officer for almost five years. Prior to being sworn, Officer Lange had worked in the Prospect Heights records unit and as a volunteer while studying to be a police officer. Lange graduated from Illinois State University. Since joining the Prospect Heights Police Department, Officer Lange has received extensive training as an Evidence Technician, and was selected to the Northwest Suburban Major Case Assistance Team as a member of the their forensic unit.

When Officer Lange is not on patrol or working on crime scenes, he also serves as a Field Training Officer for new recruits, and acts as an Officer in Charge (OIC) during the absence of a Sergeant.

As with many of the officers and staff, Officer Lange has volunteered many hours of service to the community through the Prospect Heights Police Association’s Summer Youth Outreach Program, and has been an integral part of this department’s efforts to raise donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

“Officer Lange has grown in prominence, popularity and influence in a Prospect Heights organization featuring many rising stars; but as a single individual, Officer Lange’s contributions towards achieving the mission and goals of the department, while embracing our core values, clearly makes him an exceptional young police officer,” said Chief Al Steffen. “Officer Lange was selected as our Officer of the Year because he is respected by the staff and command, as well as his peers, and because he is an outstanding police officer.”

Additional police officers and police department employees were also honored for their assistance with various community outreach events for 2017.
