JOLIET – The Crest Hill Police Association/Metropolitan Alliance of Police Chapter 15 recently presented Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow with a $1,500 check to benefit the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center.

 

The Crest Hill Police Association this year selected the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of the proceeds from its Third Annual Golf Outing held Sept. 26. Crest Hill Police Association Treasurer, Officer Ryan Dobcyzk, presented the check on Monday to State’s Attorney Glasgow, who created the center in 1995 to improve the way allegations of child sexual abuse are investigated.

 

Crest Hill Police Association President Doug Hicks, Vice President Joe Locasto and Dobczyk wrote the following in a letter to State’s Attorney Glasgow: “We appreciate all the organization has done, and know this donation will help the continued assistance of families in Will County. We thank you for your continued work as our State’s Attorney and with the Advocacy Center.”

 

The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization. Its professionally trained staff interviews children who are the victims of sexual or severe physical abuse in a non-threatening, non-suggestive environment. The children’s recorded statements have been used in the successful prosecution of literally hundreds of sexual predators and child abusers over the past 17 years. Last year, the center’s staff interviewed 321 children.

 

“Thank you to the Crest Hill Police Association for choosing the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center as the beneficiary of its golf outing this year,” State’s Attorney Glasgow said. “I would also like to thank all the participating golfers and sponsors who came to play this year. This funding along with the critical support from our police officers will enable the Center to continue its mission of protecting our children.”
