Congratulations to Billy Kushner! He was a great Chicago police boss and great guy! As for Matt Tobias... E. Fred Bosse says PAY BACK IS A BITCH!
The former police chief in northwest suburban Lakemoor has been appointed to the post in Des Plaines, city officials announced today.
William Kushner, who served as Lakemoor police chief since 2010, takes over after the retirement of Des Plaines Police Chief James Prandini. Kushner, a 35-year law enforcement veteran, has served in various roles with Chicago’s police department and as the police chief in Berwyn.
Des Plaines officials conducted a five-month nationwide recruitment effort to fill Prandini’s position.
“Kushner is an outstanding choice for our department,” Des Plaines City Manager Michael Bartholomew said in a press release. “I have every expectation that he will distinguish himself as an effective leader both in the community and for the men and women in the police department.”
Kushner is scheduled to be sworn in during the Sept. 4 city council meeting.
