Lt. Patty Casey: 12th District, 2011 Peggy A. Montes Unsung Heroine of Cook County Award Winner

WHEREAS, we recognize Lt. Patty Casey, from the 12th Cook County District who broke a gender barrier when she became a Chicago Police officer in 1989.  From Officer to Lieutenant, Lt. Casey’s career has been distinguished by her passion for the job, as well as by her accomplishments on the job, and in her personal life as well.  We applaud Lt. Casey for her steadfast focus on issues of domestic violence and for her efforts in co-founding the first external law enforcement support group for families with a special needs family member.
