Deputy Chief Jogmen Receives National Recognition for His Safety Efforts

The Green Cross for Safety® Advocate award, presented by the National Safety Council, recognizes one person in the United States, each year, for their contributions to the advancement of safety in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities.

Submissions were received from across the country and went through a technical and media review by National Safety Council staff.  The top quartile of each award category was then forwarded to the Green Cross Review Committee for consideration.  The Green Cross Review Committee, made up of individuals representing all disciplines of safety, ultimately narrowed the field to three finalists. The 2017 finalists were honored at the Green Cross for Safety Gala May 25 on San Diego's Coronado Island where Deputy Chief Jogmen was announced as this year’s winner.

Individuals eligible for the Safety Advocate award have made a significant personal impact on a safety issue using data and evidence-based practices to raise awareness and prevent further injuries and deaths. The 2017 Green Cross for Safety Advocate Award was presented to Deputy Chief Lou Jogmen for his work promoting rail safety while working for the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. Deputy Chief Jogmen has emerged as an industrious and tireless advocate of rail safety. The City of Park Ridge is proud of Deputy Chief Jogmen and his work.  Read about his work here
