CPAAAS Grants Schaumburg's Chicagoland Dog Rescue Angel Fund Award!


The Board has spoken! 

Many thanks to Betty Hlad for her Angel Fund Request on behalf of the Chicagoland Dog Rescue who is anchored in our pet friendly Schaumburg community, yet serves beloved pets all over the Chicagoland area.

We will be granting the Chicagoland Dog Rescue their award at the December 7, 2011 CPA Fall Class Graduation.

The awards are two fold:  

  • The first Award will honor our recently departed CPAAAS Alumni Jim Townsend - who loved dogs very much, and our recently retired SPD Canine Officer "Thunder".  :)
  • The Second Award will honor Jim Townsend once more, along with our recently sworn in SPD Canine Officer "Majic"! :)

Majic will make his first appearance at CPA at the Graduation of this 30th Class of CPA!

Please join us as we celebrate our brand new partnership and support our exceptional SPD Canine Officers with their friends at the Chicagoland Dog Rescue.

Hope to see you all there at Graduation Dec. 7!

All the best-

Nov. 1 CPAAAS Remembers SPD First Fallen Officer 1807

Dear Friends - 

I hope this finds you well.

On November 1, 2008, the Schaumburg Police Department and the Village of Schaumburg endured the loss of 19 year veteran Police Officer Frank Russo, Star 1807, in the line of duty.

As Monday, October 31, 2011 becomes Tuesday, November 1, 2011, the CPAAAS Community will pay our heartfelt respects to one of our Police Officers, with the placement of flowers at the flagpole outside the Police Department.

If you wish to observe this day with us by keeping him and his family in your thoughts and prayers, we would be very appreciative. 

Please feel free to take a moment to stop by the station, and park to see the flowers, or simply to recall special thoughts or share thanks for all his selfless contributions as a police officer for our lovely community. 

I often wonder, how lovely would it be, if not for those who serve and protect?

Although we will also be sending a card to his fellow night shift which begins on Oct. 31 to Nov. 1 in the morning, nothing can replace the great loss suffered by all who knew and loved him. 

Kind Regards,
