Lake County Sheriff Mark C. Curran Jr. announced the appointment of Raymond J. Rose as Undersheriff.
“I have decided that it is in the best interest of the Lake County Sheriff's Office to have an Undersheriff,” Curran said.
“The community demands of a Sheriff in a county as large as Lake County have led me to believe that the daily internal operations would be best served under the guidance of an Undersheriff. The Lake County Sheriff's Office continuing with tradition will once again have an Undersheriff. Ray Roses’ record as a law enforcement leader and community leader led me to only one doorstep. We are blessed to announce that Ray Rose has accepted my appointment as Undersheriff.”
Rose retired earlier this year as Chief of Police with the Village of Mundelein. Prior to his appointment he served with the Elk Grove Village Police Department for 24 years achieving the rank of Deputy Chief.
The Mundelein resident holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Northern Illinois University and was inducted into the Pi Alpha Alpha National Honors Society for Public Affairs and Administration.
He also attended the 59th nine-month Police Administration Training Program (P.A.T.P.) class at Northwestern University's Center for Public Safety and the 161st Session of the National F.B.I. Academy at Quantico, Virginia. He attended the 15th Session of the Senior Management Institute for Police hosted by the Police Executive Research Forum and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Additionally, he attended the Northwestern Executive Management Program (EMP), the FBI MLEEDS (Midwest Law Enforcement Executive Development Program), and attended the FBI LEEDS course at Quantico.
Rose is the past president of the Illinois Police Chief’s Association and Lake County Police Chief’s Association. He has chaired a number of task forces and committees in Lake County including Lake County Major Crimes Task Force, Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (MEG), Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Laboratory, and Northern Illinois Police Alarm System (NIPAS).
Roses’ knowledge, experience and education will be an asset to the residents of Lake County, Curran said.
