It’s A Great Day For A Birthday!

Freeport, Illinois –  As police chief for the Freeport Police department, Todd Barkalow is one local person who has certainly paid his dues to our community.

Starting off his career, Todd taught at Dakota High School where he also coached. Joining the Freeport Police Department in 1993, Todd has worked as a Patrol Officer, K-9 Handler, Street Crimes Investigator, Patrol Corporal, Community Police Officer assigned to bicycle patrol, Emergency Response Team Member/Team Leader, Patrol Sergeant, Operations Lieutenant, and Interim Chief of Police.

Todd also volunteered for a Police Training Mission in Iraq where he was assigned to the Sadr City District of Baghdad, Iraq. Chief Barkalow helped train the Iraqi Police.

Todd was appointed to the position of Police Chief in May 2014.

We here at Freeport News Network and Today In The Port have had the pleasure of getting to know our Police Chief over the past year and have to say, Todd is the real deal.

He has a great heart, his passion is in truly helping the citizens of our community, reducing crime, keeping all of us here as safe as possible and he gives of himself to so many local causes, one of which is Conversations over Pizza. We have also had the pleasure of working with him on a few local safety segments, some of them you may recognize. (Shown below.)

So happy Birthday Chief.

We hope you have a great day today on your birthday and thank you for your service to the people of our community. Let’s all wish our police chief Todd Barkalow a very happy birthday today.
