Retiring Police Department Legal Assistant Honored

Retiring Police Department Legal Assistant Honored

Illinois legal assistant, Mary Bourdeau, is retiring from the Pekin Police Department, after 25 years of outstanding service.

Bourdeau worked as a legal assistant for the police department, functioning as a liaison between the department and the courthouse.

“Her responsibility is to make sure that the hundreds of tickets and arrests we make each year are prosecuted though the legal system,” said Pekin Police Chief Ted Miller. “Her job will be partly reviewed for restructuring. While her job cannot cease to function, it may be modified and incorporated with other job duties to make the department more efficient.”

Bourdeau will be honored at the Pekin City Council Meeting on Monday.

As far as restructuring, I bet the department will find that its legal assistant did the work of three employees.
