Andrew I am glad to see Nygren go. should of left a long time ago. I hope you can do a much better job in that position, The McHenry County Sheriffs Dept needs a face lift and take a good solid look at some of it's Deputies, once some replacing has been done and the right Men put on the job then maybe the words Award winning could be used as of now or past really far from it especially professionally and the harassment of kids by some deputies need to stop and focus on real problems the county has with real criminals ,dealers, Bikers, domestics, Gangs,,, I hope you can do this job the right way and not a suck up politican sorry not trying to be rude...there are so many retired and former officers from surrounding counties living in your county and see this everyday ....Congrats Andrew
