Lieutenant Jason Leavitt Case Update
On March 6, 2012, Judge Ford dismissed the case against Park Ridge Police Lieutenant, Jason Leavitt. Lieutenant Leavitt was arrested back in November 2010 for aggravated battery and official misconduct after a Cook County State’s Attorney and FBI investigation into an alleged brutality case in 2006.
Lieutenant Leavitt, who has been on administrative leave since November 2010, will return to duty status. Steps will be taken to re-integrate him back into the department.
Chief Frank Kaminski will begin an internal investigation into this matter as soon as information regarding the case can be provided by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and the FBI.
