PRINCETON — The Princeton City Council has recognized two local police officers for their recent accomplishments.
At Monday’s council meeting at Princeton City Hall, Princeton Police Chief Tom Root announced the promotion of Christopher Erickson to the position of sergeant. Erickson began his law enforcement work in 2004 as a part-time police officer for Walnut. He graduated from the Illinois Police Academy in 2005 and was hired as a full-time officer with the Princeton Police Department in 2008. Erickson has come a long way through the years, Root said.
Root also introduced and congratulated Dustin Schaill on receiving his state certificate as a fully-qualified law enforcement officer. Schaill became a part-time officer for the Princeton Police Department in January 2012 and went immediately into the basic law enforcement training program, graduating in October. He was able to do his internship with the Princeton Police Department through Illinois Valley Community College. In time, he hopes to bring Schaill onto the force full-time, Root said.
