Park Ridge Police Officer is Recognized for His Efforts in Rail Safety

Deputy Chief Lou Jogmen was recently honored by the DuPage Railroad Safety Council (DRSC) for his strong commitment to railroad safety.  The DRSC was founded in 1994 by Dr. Lanny Wilson, and is comprised of railroad and government officials, engineers, educators and private citizens who advocate for increased railroad safety measures. Dr. Wilson created the DRSC with a mission of preventing deaths and injuries at railroad crossings and along railways.  His daughter, Lauren, was killed in a car-train collision in 1994.

The Lauren Elizabeth Wilson Award was presented in recognition of Deputy Chief Jogmen's outstanding effort as the public sector champion of railroad safety. As the Chair of the Traffic Safety Committee for the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP), Deputy Chief Jogmen was instrumental in the development and implementation of the first statewide Rail Safety Week in 2014, as well as, the subsequent Illinois Rail Safety Weeks in 2015 and 2016. Largely as a result of the work done by the ILACP, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin joined Illinois last week and participated in a regional, rail safety effort in their respective states.
