Joe, riding your rear bumper within 5 feet with your powerful Dodge squad car until you pull in your drive way is a little unnerving to say the least. This alone can cause an accident. This has happened on several occasions. I understand they are trying to observe for DUI, etc. but not everyone out after 11:00 is under the influence. I have a clean record. I donít even spit on the sidewalk :). Am I getting harassed because of the kind of car I drive? After the plate comes back with no priors or convictions, give us some slack and back off. Thatís all I'm saying.
Please mail if you have experienced any abuse from the Channahon Police Department, especially if it involves Detective Bogart or Deputy Chief Wald. classactionlawsuitchannahon@ho tmail.com

after being falsely accussed of child abduction . i'd like to say a few on the channahon police force are dimwits and shouldnt be investigating a pile of noodles. the kid says she called 911 (lie ,like the rest of her story ). the police knew they werent responding to a 911 call HELLO. but since i wasnt polite to them in their accusing me of such , they tried anyhow. we blew them out the water at trial and proved them all to be liars and imcompotent of any investigations.

You are absolutely right. They don't just observe at night, they friggin' stalk. I live in an unfinished subdivision as well, there is a back corner of the subdivision that goes back into a treeline. There is NOTHING BACK THERE EVER, and no reason to ever go there, but the cops continue to go back there, and park for extended periods of time. Even over an hour sometimes. I think they're taking naps back there.

They need to stop coming south of the river and hanging out with there girls friends in the conservation area. There is no need for them to be down here. Most of us didn't want to become part of Channahon anyway.

I wish this research were still ongoing. Since moving here 5 years ago any time I have contacted the Channahon Police Department, I've been met with a "that's not my job" or "what are you going to do about it" attitude. I have a lot of respect for the police, but not for any of the policemen I've encountered here.

I see that most of the comments msde against the police are from people who are not from Channahon. I have lived here for thirty years and have not had a problem. The Reason They are rude is BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDERSTAFFED AND DUE TO RECENT POPULATION INCREASE HERE AND MOST CHILDREN RUNNING AROUND WITH NO PARENTAL SUPERVISION AND MOST PARENTS ACTING LIKE CHILDREN THE LAW IS BEING FORCED TO RAISE THESE KIDS AND THEY ARE FED UP AS WELL AS TEACHERS. ALSO SINCE THE RECENT POPULATION INCREASE THERE HAS BEEN MORE CRIME INFLICTED UPON LONG TIME RESIDENTS HERE.
I am a victim of channahon police abbusive and you my sir have no idea what you are talking about. They pull people over and plant evidence in vehicles for their own personal gain in the ranking system.

Prior to leaving for the army in less then month I am now forced to deal with 4 traffic violations resulting from an absolutely horrid peace keeper and his pack of bandits.

First off I'm 19 and was not under the influence of any illicit substances and was asked this approximately 4-5 times as I was taking a sobriety test.

After refusing to blow/ simply because I would rather get on with my day and not be forced to go to the people station. They handcuffed me anyway and proposed I was obtaining a DUI.

Once in the car: OFFICER Keett, a man who looks to be about my age BLOWS A STOP SIGN and smiles when I ask him if that will be on his dash cam footage for court.

Aside from the threat of a DUI I received 4 misdemeanors on traffic related causes. The causes are a joke, ranging from liscence plate lights out to invalid I'd.

My liscence was renewed less then a month from today.

They are out of control. They look for any reason to pull you over and conduct B.S. Searches and impound your car, write a bunch of bogus tickets, and then never show up in court,. Everything gets dropped , but you still wind up paying an impound fee, court costs and attorney fees. They have no respect for armed service members or seniors. Just a bunch of wannbees. Disgraceful . ignorant, foul language, and rude.
