FORMER DES PLAINES POLICE CHIEFS, DEPUTY CHIEFS AND FEDERAL SPECIAL AGENTS ENDORSE BILL PRIM FOR SHERIFF
Two former Police Chiefs and two former Deputy Chiefs from the City of Des Plaines, along with two former senior federal agents, have endorsed their colleague Bill Prim in next month’s Republican primary for McHenry County Sheriff, the Prim campaign announced Monday.
Retired Des Plaines Chiefs
- Robert Sturlini and
- James Prandini
gave their vote of confidence to Prim, as did
- former Des Plaines Deputy Chief Bernie Wolter and
- retired Deputy Chief David Hachmeister.
Over his 27-year career at the northwest suburban municipality, Prim had worked for and with all four men.
Also strongly backing Prim were
- Jack O’Malley, who retired from federal service as a Senior Supervisory Agent, and
- Chuck Hiscock, a former Senior Special Agent and former Director of CABINET (Combined Agency Border Intelligence Network).
CABINET is an international intelligence organization where Prim served as state and local law enforcement coordinator for several years.
Prim worked alongside the last two men in a number of highly successful joint federal/local operations.
“I am honored that men of such very high caliber in my profession have voiced their support of me and my candidacy,” Prim said.
“As McHenry County Sheriff I am confident I will justify their confidence in me.”
