The St. Charles Police Department received the “Outstanding Community Partnership” Award on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at the Association for Individual Development (AID) Annual Meeting.
AID Victim and Outreach services has been in partnership with the City of St. Charles for 6 years. Most recently, Chief Keegan advocated to have a Victim Services Case Manager as an in-house social worker. The social worker position has been a successful addition to the St. Charles Fire and Police departments. It provides support services to victims of crime and trauma, and other wrap around services to residents with quality of life concerns. The partnership is an example of a community working together to empower people with physical, developmental, intellectual, and mental health challenges to enjoy lives of dignity and purpose.
