The Loves Park city council honored some of its cities finest police officers.
Several police officers, from both Loves Park and Cherry Valley, received appreciation awards at Monday’s council meeting, for their actions last month at an apartment complex on Applewood Lane. A fire broke out and the officers, without hesitation, grabbed ladders and rescued people who were trapped on the second floor.
Loves Parks officer Sean Kahly said he’s honored to be recognized.
“A couple of officers arrived before I did,” said Kahly. “We just jumped into action and did what we could.”
This is Officer Kahly’s first appreciation award in his career. He’s served the last two years as a member of the Loves Park Police Department.
