Chief Wheeler continued by stressing that the Taylorville Police Department is lucky to have so many committed officers that go above and beyond their normal duties. “We take great pleasure in recognizing you,” Wheeler said in an issued statement. “Your leadership skills as being in charge of Platoon A, your compassion to help others show the true meaning of not only as a Police Officer but as a person.  Your commitment as President of the Police Pension Board and your overwhelming commitment with the Christmas program “Shop with a Cop” is admirable to all.  You exemplify the innovative skills to be a great leader and service to the City of Taylorville.”


Chief Wheeler continued by praising Sgt Mills fidelity, steadiness, and desire to make the other Officers excel and help run the department effectively. Regional Radio News salutes you, Sergeant Alan Mills!
