Sauk Village keeping its police chief

November 5, 2012 (SAUK VILLAGE, Ill.)

Last week, ABC7 reported that the village board had voted to combine the police and fire chief jobs.

However, Mayor Lewis Towers has reversed the decision, allowing the police chief to return to work.

Towers says that it was a public safety decision, not a political one. He says there is too much crime in the village to combine the two jobs.
