Just wanted to pass on a compliment to the Manteno Police! It could be a call to unlock a locked car, or a robbery near the I-57 exit... They always seem to be on the spot quick! It easy to dislike the police, But most and I mean MOST are people who love the job, the more dangerous or exciting the call the better. Think about that... I do know that many of the Manteno Officers have come from other Departments, I think they have an older, mature and experianced group. Well, just saying thanks! I have seen other post here that complain about the Manteno PD and I thought I would just offer my thoughts.

Of all the Kankakee County Departments, I think Manteno and Kankakee City are the best. The others seem to have alot of issues.

Isnt that the chief who is in trouble? Are the officers that much different? I dont know, just asking since it was posted. I live in Arizona now but just moved recently from the Peotone area and have been keeping up with local news from there. The police from three or four area departments seem to be suspect of wrong doing. Good luck back there!

I have heard that there are big issues in Manteno with the police and the FBI is doing a serious investigation. They are going against court orders and stealing money and running a prostitution ring including child prostitutes. I have a friend who is with the fbi in Chicago, and he told me there is serious serious charges coming in Manteno. They used the monies from the prostitution web site business and started their own prostitution ring.

The last thing I heard was that they were unknowing pawns used by the Grant Park Police Chief and were cooperating with the FBI's investigation.

Don't know what part of the "FBI" your friend works for, but aparently it's not the part that receives credible information.

until we as citizens wake up to the corruption that bernie is up to and all of the people like me who he has pushed around team up and out him.....nothing will change........he has the states attorney in his back pocket in kankakee along with the fbi........these people think since they are the controls of the law that they can make the laws.........so what laws allow my 3 little girls to be molested ...have an ER doctor testify on their injuries of rape and not do anything..........you tell me........I am a pissed off concerned parent who is in disbelief.....these people's day will come and I will be sitting in the front row of the court room to watch these freak's spend the rest of their lives in jail.......what you don't know ..you need to understand....manteno is home to mass corruption and it starts at the top......so lets look at bernie......he was the kankakee county sheriff...right....he steps down and hands his job to the current sheriff....so you say he places his droid....then he gets fitts...his buddy thrown under the bus and walks .....well who did not keep records...manteno....who was involved...manteno.....and who got off free....bernie.....and its because he has an fbi informant in his back pocket....so with that said....I pray no one goes through the things me and my daughters are experiencing......that a convicted sex offender be allowed to be with your children because his uncle is a sheriff and has PULL

Bernie Thompson is corrupt, as is all of Manteno and Kankakee, and the Kankakee states attorney's office. The man who is talking about the molestation....why hasn't the states attorney's office done anything? Because he's buddies with the man who's doing it. Many many people have contacted the states attorney's office and none of them have been contacted regarding sexual assault of three little girls by a repeat offender!!!! excuse me. Law school 101 is at least contact the people who are saying its happening by a REPEAT OFFENDER. No they're covering for Uncle Bernie. Not for long. Lots of people involved. Lots. And Leo, just because you've never had a problem dont' close your eyes. It doesn't make it right for someone to harass and intimidate and rape little kids, but its okay becaues you never had a problem. come on. Be real.

For a fan, get real, I can tell you a story about Manteno police, they stopped a private detective who was in their town to watch a sex offender, who's related to the Manteno police, and see if he's hurting little girls. The Manteno police harassed the private eye, took his night goggles, took his camera, and threatened to throw down cocaine on him. Protecting Uncle B's nephew. Nice. Nice town. And then had the state police escort him back to southern Illinois. Nice. Real nice. Livin in your dream world.

They took down Fitts, maybe someone else is nuts. Do you live in a dream world. They took money, the Grant Park and Manteno, police, faked investigations of prostitution, stole the money, made no reports, and that's a good police department. Dream on. Dream on. I guess with people with brains like yours, you deserve the police department that you have.
