The “Triple Crown Award” is awarded by the National Sheriffs’ Association which describes the award and how it is attained: “Only by attaining simultaneous accreditation, through

  • the Commission on the Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA);
  • the Commission on Accreditation for Corrections (CAC) of the American Correctional Association (ACA); and
  • the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHA)

does a Sheriff’s Office receive this most prestigious award.”

The award is given to those that have proven excellence and that their policies demonstrate the best practices nationwide throughout all Sheriff’s Offices.

Sheriff Nygren attributes the credit for receiving this award to the fine men and women of the Department and how the Sheriff’s Office provides policing in the community.

“The community should be proud of the Sheriff’s Office accomplishments and our pursuit of excellence,” stated Sheriff Nygren. “It is their hard work that helped this Office to receive this very rare award.”

McHenry County is the third Sheriff’s Office in the State of Illinois, joining Cook County and DuPage County Sheriff’s Offices to receive the “Triple Crown Award”. In June, McHenry County became one of 35 Sheriffs’ Offices in the United States to have attained this status. There are 3,080 in the United States.

  1. It won’t be found to be a violation.

    Complaints had gone to his bosses, an employee has an obligation to give supervisors information about complaints made.

    Should he have sent his Pony Express.

    Would seem odd to respond to a complaint to your manager on a personal email instead of an official one.

    Seems like “expert” quoted seems to not know it was a response to complaints made.

    Either way it sad to see he wasn’t flipping off the Prim supporters.

    All the nasty personal attacks on Zinke’s family from that camp it would have been great to hear a few of them were flipped the bird.

  2. Either way, the Triple Crown Award is a massive achievement.

    McHenry County should be proud of the accomplishment.

    I was kind of curious if the Prim crowd was going to take the high road on this one or look to drag it back down to the gutter.

    I guess questioned answered.

  3. Couldn’t agree more Oscar…it was old when it was used against Sarah Palin, it was old when it was used against Joe Walsh and it old and wrong again now that it is being used by Prim supporters against Zinke.

    It never should be acceptable and here is hoping it gets old enough some day that campaigns stop using it and candidates some day disavow any supporters that use such tactics.
