Police: 'Suspicious person' at Lisle park was officer
Lisle police have issued a news release clarifying an incident some residents found suspicious last week at a local park.
Police had received inquiries about a man taking photographs last Wednesday in Community Park, which is on Short Street, just west of Route 53, the release said.
Someone who saw the man feared for the safety of children in the park and sent several emails to various groups warning members to be on the lookout, police said, and one of the email recipients contacted police.
According to the news release, Lisle police determined the man taking photos in the park actually was a police officer participating in an advanced evidence technician course that required officers to take photos in low light around the Community Park area.
The course, hosted by the Lisle Police Department, ran Aug. 28-30 and was attended by officers from several police departments. Several officers took photos in the park during the afternoon and evening hours on those days, police said.
Residents are encouraged to contact Lisle police to report anything they deem suspicious, the release said.
