BEECHER – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow was joined by local citizens, area police chiefs and Washington Township officials on Monday, October 1 for the opening of a satellite office to serve the citizens in Eastern Will County.
Washington Township officials including Supervisor and Will County Board Member Robert Howard, Trustee Patricia Peters, Accountant Tom Brislane and General Assistance Coordinator Elizabeth Delgado were among those on hand to greet citizens. Beecher Police Chief Jeffrey L. Weissgerber and Peotone Police Chief Bill Mort also attended the opening.
State’s Attorney Glasgow, along with Assistant State’s Attorney Kathy Patton, who will staff the office on the first Monday of each month, met privately with citizens to discuss their concerns and issues. Assistant State’s Attorney Patton is the chief of Glasgow’s Criminal Division and a resident of Eastern Will County.
Assistant State's Attorney Kathy Patton fields questions from citizens on the opening day of the Will County State's Attorney's satellite office in Beecher.
“Our goal is to make the services of the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office as accessible as possible to everyone in our county,” Glasgow said. “The opening of this office will give citizens from Beecher, Peotone, Crete, Monee and University Park a more convenient option other than driving to Joliet when they need face-to-face contact with an attorney from our office.”
The satellite office is located at the Washington Township Offices, 30200 Town Center Road in Beecher. The office will be open from 9 a.m. until noon on the first Monday of each month.
Issues that may be addressed at the satellite office include:
“I want to thank Bob Howard and the Washington Township trustees for making office space available inside their building for our attorney,” Glasgow said. “Bob understands the importance of making government services accessible to everyone in our county. Our new partnership will help the State’s Attorney’s Office, Washington Township and our local police agencies reach out and serve even greater numbers of citizens.”
