Grau Gets State Police Job
Gov. Quinn on Friday appointed a former Chicago cop and high-ranking aide to Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez to head the Illinois State Police.
Hiram Grau will fill the post vacated in February by Jonathan Monken, who was Quinn’s 2009 choice to head the state law-enforcement agency but was moved to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency after being unable to win Senate confirmation as State Police director.
[...] Grau is a 27-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department and had been mentioned as an interim successor to former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis, who stepped down earlier this month. Grau, who had been a finalist for Chicago’s top police job when Weis was hired, had been a street patrolman, sergeant, lieutenant, commander and first deputy within Chicago’s police department.
How's that Vanecko investigation looking now? Remember - it's all about the appearance of impropriety.
