A Peoria County lieutenant was awarded the Harold D. Brignadello Award by the Peoria County Association of Chiefs of Police at its annual Christmas awards banquet. The award, named for a state police lieutenant, is presented to a member of the PCACP who best exemplifies the purpose and goals of the association. Mark Molleck was given the award by PCACP President, Sheriff Mike McCoy. Molleck coordinated the search which involved members of different law enforcement agencies for Alzheimer's patient John Garrett last February. Lt. Molleck was also recognized for his instrumental role in establishing a search and rescue team in Peoria County. The team, created in May, now has 37 trained and certified volunteers who respond to missing person call outs in Peoria County, neighboring counties, and communities across the state.
