        SOUTH JACKSONVILLE – The Illinois Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has recognized Penny Carl of Jacksonville for assistance she provided in helping to solve several vehicle burglary cases. The appreciation award was presented by Jacksonville FOP Lodge President Doug Thompson, South Jacksonville Police Chief Josh Hallock, and Sergeant Brian Wilson. 


       “Citizens are a key part of community policing, and Penny Carl's efforts meant that these burglaries were solved and other car break-ins were prevented,” said Illinois FOP President Chris Southwood. “This is an excellent example of people and police working together to make the community a better place.”


      Carl operates the Circle K convenience store in the Village of South Jacksonville, and took the time to personally review security videos of her patrons to help police officers identify suspects in several vehicle burglaries in the village. Because of her efforts, the cases were solved, arrests were made, and additional burglaries by the suspects prevented.
