I’m grateful to our officers for all they do to protect our residents and for the sacrifices they make to keep our community safe every day,” said Mason. “I’m so glad to see this event come to Gurnee this year, it’s a great opportunity for law enforcement to connect with residents and for both groups to continue cultivating a positive relationship with one another.”
The Law Enforcement Expo is an annual event open to the public featuring police squad cars, motorcycles and family-friendly demonstrations.
