WHY SHOULDN'T SHE BE CHIEF OF POLICE? It only makes sense to have a thief in charge of catching thieves.Who would better understand the methods of a thief than another thief.Dwight Welch swearched far and wide for a person of her moral fiber and also was fortunate enough to get her husband,another class A thief,as a high ranking officer in the Country Club Hills Police Dept..The sad part about this whole fiasco is that this demoralizes a bunch of great policemen who are trying to do their job.

And its alarming when Welch states he isnt concerned about her personal life. Thats bull shit1 Police personal lives are scrutinized as part of a background investigation prior to hiring. And it was and he was told of her issues and he said f it. He always claims he was, a long time ago, a police officer. He should have known better but he did it anyway. Every Officer around that city knows of her and her husband and will politely shy away from any CCHPD involvement because of them and her many family employees. Many! A cop in debt is a risk when dealing with dope, guns and money either on the street or as evidence. I think an audit is due on the evidence vault. Welch is finally looking like the incompetant crook he is.

I can't wait for the indictments to come down on the chief and the mayor. The mayor saying he never saw the recommendation not to hire the chief is total BS!!!! But lets see, the Deputy Chief at the time gave her recommendation NOT TO HIRE HER!!! I wonder why...Because the thorough background investigation that was done shed the light on the her personal matters, as well as her professional matters at CPD and why she left. And now the mayor and the chief are blackballing all the good employees, making demotions, trying to push out the employees that question their ways. All I can say is TERI PLEASE SUE THE DOG SH!T OUT OF THE CHIEF, THE MAYOR, AND THE VILLAGE OF CC HILLS, AND TAKE THE MILLIONS TO THE BANK. You and your family deserve to get paid for the injustice done to you and your family. And make sure your get your rank back too

What does the Chief do? She is never at the station and she managed to get rid of all the Command staff that did all the work, but tried to keep her husband that did nothing but collect a pay check(REALLY). I fell sorry for all the officers that work there.

Country club hills is the worst town ever. My fiancee was raised in this town and about a year ago got pulled over and beaten severely by a group of about 10 if not more police. We made so many complaints and yet the city did absolutely nothing. It's a shame that they let their officers do such terrible things like this and get away with it. It's time for someone to stop this. And to make it even better, the officer who initiated the beating is a sergeant! Once this lawsuit begins hopefully they will open their eyes and realize what's right and WRONG....

Does anybody know how to report a domestic incident that happened with chills police? They beat my fiancee up and we are in the process of sueing them. I really want to get this story in the paper so people know what their police are doing with their time. We have pictures of the damage they did to him and we also have a lawyer who is handling the settlement process right now. Anyone have any ideas for me???

Yea the former Chief now Mayor claims to know nothing of her background. That and the rest of the politicians lying again, "...we didn't know re-elect us..." What a joke. Extensive background checks are conducted for entry level patrol officers. Not to check a potential Chief's background or not be aware of red flags wake up boys and girls. This was a political hire by politicians. Guess what residents, get ready to pay out for the damages that your, ALL OF THEM, elected officials created. GO ILLINOIS POLITICS KEEPING THE FEDERAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM BUSY!!!!!
