CPN PD honored by Tecumseh Police Department

CPN PD Honored PhotoCitizen Potawatomi Nation’s Tribal Police Department received a unique honor when City of Tecumseh Police Chief Gary Crosby presented CPN Police Chief Jim Collard with a plaque thanking the tribal police for their cooperation and support with law enforcement. Tecumseh’s Assistant Chief of Police J.R Kidney also attended the gathering at the CPN North Reunion Hall.

“We wanted to thank them for going above and beyond in our current partnership. They are always there when we need anything,” said Kidney. “They are an excellent partner, whether they’re a radio call away when our guys are out on patrol, or when we have to have extra cover when we at Tecumseh P.D. have administrative meetings.”

The two departments work closely given the tribe’s jurisdiction throughout large sections of Pottawatomie County.

“It is always special to be honored as police officers,” said CPN Police Chief Jim Collard. “But it is incredibly meaningful to be honored by a fellow department like the Tecumseh P.D. Above all, they know what it is like running towards the sound of danger when everyone else is going the opposite direction. To us, their recognition is the highest praise we could receive.”

The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Police Department was founded more than two decades ago to protect tribal assets and employees, increase public safety and enhance the general well-being of the community.
