A Rockford police officer is selected to serve on a commission regarding state policing standards.
Officer Aurelio DeLaRosa will serve on Illinois’ Commission on Police Professionalism. DeLaRosa was selected based off his accomplishments and knowledge in police training and standards.
Illinois legislators created the the Commission as part of the police reform package that was signed into law in August. It’s designed to review performance standards governing the professionalism of law enforcement agencies and officers in the 21st century.
“The Commission will examine all aspects of law enforcement as Illinois looks forward to setting the national standard,” said State Representative John Cabello, who nominated Officer DeLaRosa. “I am committed to the hard working families and heard their call to overhaul our entire criminal justice system. I am confident Officer DeLaRosa’s experiences will truly benefit the Commission and thank him for accepting this important position.”
The Commission will submit a report of its findings and legislative recommendations to the General Assembly and Governor on or before January 31, 2016.
