LANSING, Ill. (September 19, 2017) – As part of the Mayor’s Report at the Committee of the Whole meeting, the Village Board recognized Lansing Police Officer Tim Biron, who was recently promoted from Sergeant to Lieutenant. The promotion had gone into effect in August, and September 19 was the first meeting of the Board since that time.
“Tim has served the department—he’s in his 24th year now,” said Chief Dennis Murrin. Murrin described Biron’s role as a mentor and his help with LPD’s computers, video, and other technology.
After accepting the gratitude of the Board, Lt. Biron expressed thanks for the Board’s “obvious support” of the police department. “It’s nice to work in a place where you know you have the backing of the citizens,” he said.
Lt. Biron will now serve as a patrol lieutenant, continuing to lead his shift.
