The Homewood Police members need your help ! The members of your fine police department are being threatened with job termination if they do not start writing the citizens of Homewood more tickets ! Is this what you want your police department to do? Well I don't. The current patrol commander deputy chief william alcott has threatened his employees with termination if they do not start writing more tickets. Please call Mayor Hofeld and express your concern that this may happen. The members of the police department care very much about the community and understand these financially hard times. They do not want to burden our citizens with a $120.00 ticket but their deputy chief does! This is not what we want our police to do. Please help! Call mayor Hofeld

Homewood residents don't be alarmed by Ralph's comments. Very unlikely what he states is true. The courts have long held that ticket quotas are illegal. Laws also protect Police Officers from being fired without lawful cause. Deputy Chief Alcott is one of the finest Police Officers in the south suburbs.
