On the latest episode of the Champaign City Profiles podcast, Interim Deputy Chief Geoff Coon (Champaign Police Department) shares how a chance internship led to his career in law enforcement, his duties and responsibilities at the department, and why CPD is a great destination for both new and experienced officers looking to move to a new agency. Hear why he thinks most police officers are drawn to the profession for the opportunity to help others, and how building connections with the community is a priority of the Champaign Police Department. DC Coon also serves as the Law Enforcement Coordinator for Champaign County Crime Stoppers, and he shares information about that group and how anonymous tips from the public have helped local law enforcement agencies solve countless crimes committed in Champaign County.
