As police departments across the country are under a microscope regarding how they conduct their job, the chief of Plainfield's law enforcement agency is assuring residents and visitors to the community that integrity, respect and compassion are some of the cornerstones his officers use every day. Chief John Konopek said criminal justice reform has been at the forefront of discussion since the death of George Floyd Jr. in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25 that prompted nationwide protests and some even calling for the need to defund police. He said the best way to forge relationships is to partner with the community.
