Gurnee Citizen Police Academy Raising Funds for Statue at New Headquarters


Byline: Tony Gordon

A Gurnee citizen's group is looking for help in paying a bill for the village government.

No, that is not a misprint. The Gurnee Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association wants citizens to pick up the check for a statue to be placed in front of a new police headquarters building.

If the association can't raise the $50,000 needed to finance Ron Howell's rendition of "The Guardian," a friendly police officer with children at each arm, the village board will take up the slack.

"I think we will be able to raise $50,000 and then some," said association president Candace Fujii. "There is a lot of support in this community for the police, and I believe people will be willing to show it."

Fujii said the association plans to offer engraved bricks to be laid in a walkway around the statue, which is to be erected at a new proposed police station targeted for Washington Street and O'Plaine Road.

Bricks will be offered to both individual and corporate donors, she said. For individuals who want bricks engraved with their names at the statue, the cost will be $100 for small bricks and $250 for large ones.

Corporate donors can leave their message on a brick for a minimum donation of $250 for the small bricks and a minimum of $500 for the large ones.

The association will also, starting in July, offer 1:43 scale reproductions of a Gurnee squad car for $25. Fujii said the cars, when they become available, will be offered for sale at the July Fourth celebration, Gurnee Days, the police station at 4587 Grand Ave. and at other events.

For more information about the fund-raising effort, call (847) 855-9600 and leave a message for a return call.

Security upgraded: Technological advances in building security have been installed at two of the three public entrances to the Lake County Administration Center and Courthouse in Waukegan.
