Sheriff Receives Professional of the Year Award

DuPage County Sheriff John Zaruba receives 2013 Court Security Professional of the Year award from National Sheriff's Association.

DuPage County Sheriff John E. Zaruba was awarded with the 2013 Court Security Professional of the Year award by the National Sheriffs’ Association. He was presented with this honor on Feb. 2 at the National Sheriffs Association Annual Winter Conference in Washington, DC.

The award recognizes a professional who has created an innovative process, program or procedure that has contributed to the improvement of the court environment in security, safety, custody, or any other significant improvement in court security operations, according to a news release from the Sheriff's office.

“Our court houses must provide a safe and secure setting for the public, and for those who work there,” Sheriff Zaruba said in a statement. “Maintaining the developing needs of the courts and staying in the forefront in the field of court safety and security is vital in safeguarding our courthouses and the people in them."

Zaruba has served on the board of the National Sheriff’s Association (NSA) Court Security Committee and is the current chairman.

Really? Interesting, especially knowing of the recent one million $$ settlement in favor of a former deputy. He ought to resign. While the law suit would not suggest such the court awarded settlement ought to mandate it http://couriernews.suntimes.com/news/18187869-418/dupage-county-board-upset- with-settlement-of-lawsuit.html

Doesn't the County have insurance to cover the $1 Million award to an employee due to discrimination by the Sheriff? Why is this award against the Office of the Sheriff and not Zaruba personally? Why is the DuPage Co. State's Attorney serving as Zaruba's personal attorney for actions taken that violate federal law? Does Zaruba have immunity for these illegal actions taken while holding office? Why isn't Zaruba being prosecuted for this? Is there a conflict of interest with the DuPage State's Attorney as both prosecutor and defender? Do we need to bring in an outside Special Prosecutor?
