Last Thursday, Chicago Heights Police Chief Thomas Rogers was the recipient of the Excellence in Law Enforcement Award from Cook County Crime-Stoppers. In 2006, in his capacity as a detective, Rogers worked alongside fellow detectives from the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force to apprehend the suspect accused of fatally injuring Metra Police Officer Thomas Cook. This past January, the offender was convicted and sentenced to life in prison, largely due to the determination and perseverance exhibited by the group over the years. “With the hard work from the Task Force, the offender was charged with first degree murder,” stated Chief Rogers. “Officer Cook is a hero who will never be forgotten.”
Congratulations, Chief Rogers, on the recognition and award.
