CREST HILL POLICE ARE BOGUS FOR THE MOST PART!!!

Yes, there are a FEW very good Police Officers; however, there are those who do not have a clue. I had numerous reports against an individual for harassing my children. Never got anywhere with them. We eventually moved. They treated me like the perpetrator when I called. This Family had a long history of domestic violence and had issues with other neighbors. They still do, but I'm not there to suffer any longer. My children can go outside and play without any fear. They want witnesses, camera footage, proof, proof, and more proof. Are not the words of an innocent child enough?? Good Luck. You can go to the State Police if you feel they are not doing their job. Good Luck is all I have to say. So glad I moved. I did not feel protected at all when I lived there.

Crest Hill police always seem to be doing their job. I don't have much involvement with them but the town seems safe. No major crime. Neighborhoods are quiet at night. No gang signs. I hope if there are any bad ones that the rest do the right thing and get rid of him/her.

I went to the Crest Hill Police Department to report a series of robberies. The office on post was the rudest individual that I have ever met. He was trying to make me seem like a bad person for reporting and he seemed focused on dehumanizing me. I drove an hour out of my way to the location of the incident to make this report, but i ended up feeling like an idiot for it. I was assured that no one was going to care about the robberies even though we know who did it were they live and the perpetrators were caught in camera. I even had pictures of their home! I lost all hope in the justice system because of this incident.

Just to elaborate on my prior post. The robberies were all on hard working individuals while they were at work. The video evidence was as clear as day! I just needed an officer to go to the company and ask for it since they wouldnÂ’t turn it over to me, but the Crest Hill Police seemed unable to ask for this evidence. It has been a long time and the case was never turned over to a detective.

Angel, I am sure the officer you spoke with told you to call a lawyer.

Despite what you think, or want, the police in any city, would need a court order to get the video evidence you want.

WTF? When you call the police and make a report THEY are supposed to contact the District Att. for any and all warrants needed to obtain evidence and testimony.

Angel if what you posted is true write down as much as you can recall. Names, times and locations of all involved in both the crime and the reporting and send them to the State Police.

We had gas syphoned out of one of our cars. We called the CH police to report it. We were not only belittled by the officer but told that the car is old and the gas tank must be malfunctioning. Yep! He must be right! I filled my tank on the way home from work the night before 1 block from home to wake up int he morning to a completely empty tank. Hmmm, no gas on the ground, no leaking...yep....must just be my old car! He then promised to put an extra patrol on the subdivision after arguing with us for 40 minutes. Still have yet to see an officer in our subdivision and it's been 6 weeks!
Locking gas cap at Autozone:$12.99

No, I did not get arrested for any of those you mentioned!! Never even had a traffic/parking ticket! My husband was arrested falsely and he beat the charges in will county court!!! the fact is,Crest Hill Police Officer who wrote the report (mind you it took 7 days to even see the report!)completely lied on the report! I know this because I was present, police had statements from two so called witnesses on the report( only one was listed as a witness on the actual witness part,witness never signed the police report stating that was true, the one sentenced they spoke to police}. where is the other witnesses name that was mentioned all over the police report?????????? HA... Even though I was present and gave my statement,they(POLICE) changed my words around and added a few of their own words(POLICE). I know this!!! Will county leagally extorts individuals for financial gain!! Remember Kevin Fox? how he was railroaded for Murder, until the KILEER of his 3 year old daughter had raped and assulted someone in his own family!!! Will County is crooked!!!

I meant to say Legally extorts individuals for financial gain!!! The killer of that beautiful 3 year old Riley Fox was loose on our streets for 18 months!!! Our states attorney was up for election and needed an arrest for the crime!!! How pathetic huh!!! well, after his stint in will county jail, and the real killer being caught.....OUR TAX DOLLARS OF 15 MILLION WAS GIVEN TO MR. FOX. How messed up, lets keep him in office again!!!lmao!!!! Will county for the most part is a joke!! I do want to point out>>>>There are a few good ones in the police departments in WILL county. Not too sure about all the DEVIL advocates at the states attorneys office or the courthouse officials!!! Want to sell and get the heck out of here!!! My neighborhood is turning to shit anyway, Gunshots, gang activity, thefts to cars and Homes. WHERE are the police when that is going down huh? Oh thats right, they are on a call for loud music !!!!! God bless the rightous police in Crest Hill. I know of two!!!! Joe P. is one of them!!

Hi FOlks this particular rant has nothing to do with Crest Hill, but somehting to do with a little corrupt police town in Illinois.

Majority of police are really corrupt and they are not to be trusted. You should only contact them in a die-hart situation and even then I would question it. Try to handle everything you can in life without them. I wish I could go more into detail with the police but I am dealing with something right now where they basically pulled a training day on me and illegally pulled me over(BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO SLOW!!! ON THE HIGHWAY) LOL and searched my vehicle and stole a large amount of cash in Illinois because I told them I was going to Vegas. I am currently taking every matter I can to getting the money back. But after they violated me and Illegally search my car with no probable cause.--> The canine walked around my car 4 times and didn't 'hit' or do anything in that matter different from point a to point b and yet they still searched. Upon searching my trunk there was a large amount of cash sealed with 3 levels of packages inside of a concealed bag and they took it. AND NO DRUGS!!!

Also keep in mind that I have no priors or anything ever on my record. But yet they did this to me. Fuck the police! They are more crooked than a crack dealer. There is no real police out there anymore. All it is; is a modern day mafia. They do whatever they want, when they want.

I have had a few run ins with a few very unprofessional officers in Crest Hill, thankfully for the city I'm sure it was only because they were rookies. Pesavento is an amazing police officer, and Thuringer truly cares about his community.

I must echo those who said he is a good cop. I recently dealt with him on a matter which was of a sensitive nature and he went WAY out of his way for me to get it taken care of.
Kudos to Sergeant Pesavento. Law enforcement needs more like him.
