Franklin Park Manila Lion’s Club Announces Firefighter And Police Officer of the Year

| February 3, 2013

The Franklin Park Manila Lion’s Club each year pays tribute to a Franklin Park police officer and fireman. This year’s choices were Lara Hill from the police department and Lt. Robert Beuse from the fire department. Lara was recognized for her outstanding work in the State’s Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign and contributions to the department’s child safety seat program. Ms. Hill is an 18 year veteran and has served as a patrol officer, school liaison officer and field training officer.

Lt. Beuse was selected due to his heroic efforts when he assisted in rescuing a civilian from a burning apartment building in April of 2012. He received the Medal of Valor Award by the Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshall. Lt. Beuse is now retired from the department.

Congratulations to you both!
