Freeport, Illinois — August 7, 2017 — It’s a dream nearly ever child has had since they were young; be a police officer. According to the Freeport Police, on July 20th, TCCS student DJ Fortney reported for duty with Chief Todd Barkalow.
It all started back on May 5th of this year. Tri-County Christian School (TCCS) in Freeport hosted their 13th Annual Live & Silent Dinner Auction at Crossroads Community Church.
On the auction block at this year’s event was a chance to be “Police Chief for the day”.
The winning bidder for this auction item was the Fortney Family.
Honorary Chief Fortney’s day kicked off with lunch at Culver’s before spending some time watching Emergency Response Team (E.R.T.) training and touring City departments to meet with various City officials, according to the Freeport Police.
After a long hard day of fighting crime and decision making, the Freeport Police stated that Chief Fortney’s last stop was at Union Dairy for some ice cream.
