Sycamore Swears In New Police Chief

Aug 8, 2017

Jim Winters took the oath to serve as Sycamore's new police chief Monday after the city council voted 7-0 in favor of his appointment. 

Winters joined the department last summer upon the retirement of the previous deputy police chief. He has been acting chief since his predecessor, Glenn Theriault, was placed on administrative leave after "un-arresting" an Elgin officer and colleague detained for suspected driving under the influence.
