The Sky is Falling!!!
- An investigation into a Chicago police district commander has been launched after allegations she made phone threats against a former boyfriend, who is also an officer, according to court records.
A Cook County judge filed an emergency order of protection March 12 against Penelope Trahanas, the commander of the Harrison District, according to the court documents.
The filing also said that while Trahanas does not have the specifics of the allegations against her, any claims that she engaged in "unlawful or violent behavior ... are completely untrue.''
Trahanas "enjoys an excellent reputation within the law enforcement community," the filing said.
The details of the alleged threats are outlined in a March 11 Chicago police report, according to the court record. In that report, Jackson stated he was concerned Trahanas would do "everything within her power to try and have him fired from his job."
In another alleged voice message, Trahanas allegedly made a veiled physical threat against him, the court documents said. The report also mentioned that Trahanas made 15 other phone calls of "a similar nature."
