A Message to Our Residents Regarding Tonight’s COPS Day Picnic 

I wanted to share this message directly so there is no confusion and to make sure that our community knows that the COPS Day Picnic is a safe, free event at which everyone is welcome.  COPS Day is the police department’s signature annual event in which we seek to express our appreciation and give back to the community, and it has been increasing in popularity every year. 
The police department has hosted this event for over 20 years and the Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management has been a partner of our COPS Day Picnic for the past decade, by graciously providing us the use of their air-conditioned trailer for our COPS Day event. 
This trailer is NOT an Immigration and Customs Enforcement vehicle and it is NOT parked there for any type of immigration enforcement operation.  For the past approximately 12 years, the Illinois Masons have used this air-conditioned trailer at the picnic to offer their Child Identification Program kits to parents during the picnic.  These kits are created and given to parents to keep, in the event their child ever goes missing.  Parents are given a color photo, a voice sample, DNA sample, and fingerprints of their child to hold onto for safekeeping.  Each year, nearly 100 kits are created and given to parents free of charge. 
I invite EVERYONE to come and attend this annual event which allows all residents the opportunity to meet and interact with personnel from your police department in an informal, entertaining and safe environment.  I thank all of you who have attended our event in the past and I look forward to seeing everyone at the picnic tonight.

--Chief Mike Menough
