METROPOLIS – The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police announced this week that State Representative Patrick Windhorst (R-Metropolis) has been named one of two “Public Officials of the Year.”
Windhorst was recognized by the association for his efforts to promote and protect public safety and strong support of law enforcement during his first term as 118th District State Representative.
“As a member of the House Judiciary Criminal Law Committee, I have worked to enact laws that improve public safety and support our law enforcement officials at all levels,” Windhorst said. “I am grateful to the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police for bestowing this honor on me. I will continue to stand for public policies that improve safety in our communities and provide the resources and support to the brave men and women of the law enforcement community as a member of the Illinois House.”
Attorney General Kwame Raoul, a Democrat from Chicago, was also named “Public Official of the Year” by the association.
