The Kendall County Sheriff's Office is donating a used police vehicle to the Indian Valley Vocational Center in Sandwich to be used for its law enforcement program. Sheriff Dwight Baird says the donation will support a great local educational institution and all of its students. Baird thinks that the law enforcement program at IVVC will give the retired squad car a new lease on life and put it to good use.
In other Kendall County Sheriff's Office news, a new deputy was sworn in Thursday. Deputy Brendan Heye was an officer at the Yorkville Police Department for over four years and attended Western Illinois University's law enforcement program.
Heye will be paired with an experienced deputy for a fourteen week training program.
