Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Park Forest officials released the following statement regarding the charges announced against Park Forest Police Officer Craig Taylor:
The Village of Park Forest today issued the following statement regarding charges filed against a Park Forest police officer in a man’s death last July:
Earlier today Park Forest Police Officer Craig Taylor was charged with Reckless Conduct in connection with the death of Mr. John Wrana. Officer Taylor surrendered and was released on his own recognizance.
Officer Taylor has been an outstanding police officer in our community since 2004 and has our full support.
We believe that the facts of this case do not justify any criminal charges being filed against Officer Taylor. The Village anticipates no further comment on this matter until all of the evidence is presented at trial.
