There are some interesting points about the interim police chief for Schaumburg. First, the village hires a consulting firm, Hillard Heinz, to recommend a new police chief candidate, and that candidate just happens to be their own chief operating officer. It is to be presumed that he had a financial gain when the consulting firm was hired.
Second, now he gains more financially as the "interim" police chief. He is also eligible for retirement benefits as a retiree of 23 years on Illinois State police. Will he also be eligible for some kind of retirement package from Schaumburg police?
Third, Hillard Heinz continues to be retained for the search for permanent chief. Does anybody except me question a potential conflict of interest since their chief operating officer is probably in the running? By the way, does Mr. Bouche continue to maintain his chief operating officer position with Hillard Heinz?
