NEWS: Northlake sues insurance company after losing employment suit

More money for the City of Northlake to pay out regarding lawsuits against the Northlake Police Department and Police Chief Dennis Koletsos…… September 9, 2010 By MARK LAWTON [email protected] In a kind of chain reaction, a lawsuit against the city of Northlake has led the city to file a lawsuit of its own. In January 2008, Daniel Rasic filed a lawsuit against the city of Northlake, Police Chief Dennis Koletsos and the Police and Fire Commission. Rasic was hired as a police officer by the city in 1999. He filed suit against the city in 2008, claiming the city had fired him for taking family …Read more […..]

Goofy Northlake Memos

I was cleaning our office drawer when I came across a goofy memo that police chief Dennis Koletsos had sent to some newer officers–each memo marked with dots placed in different places to, presumably, identify which officer had given us(union reps) copies. lol, unreal. You be the judge as to what the memo is all about…This guy is still police chief btw… There are 2 “anonyonous” letters that were also sent to my mother who lived in the city of Northlake at the time. This place amazes me how immature and idiotic things can be…. Memos can be seen better here: http://picasaweb.google.com/vivalafranz1/NewMemos#5499763187644755106 …Read more […..]

The City of Northlake and Police Chief Koletsos Lose Lawsuit

It seems the(in my opinion) infamously arrogant and cocky Dennis Koletsos and his equally ignorant employer have lost a lawsuit. This was a long time coming and I am sure they are feeling very good now. LOL This guy has been, in my opinion, running rampant in the Northlake Police Department for years now. It was only a matter of time that something like this would happen. If he testified at trial I would have loved to have seen that! He gets flustered easily and turns red when he gets pressured.Quite comical. I wonder what the residents of Northlake think now that they will have to pay the burden of this lawsuit. …Read more […..]

Article That Describes Actions of the Northlake Police Chief

This article is an awesome one that decribes how law enforcement management gets at Police Officers, most of whom are union members. From personal experience my opinion is that The City Of Northlake, Illinois’ Police Chief Dennis Koletsos uses this technique extensively. After never having any complaints against me in 10 years on the job it was funny how after becoming our Union President I was suddenly being suspended and investigated for “anonyomous” complaints, etc….. Those who have worked there know what I am talking about. Those except for the relatively few suck ups that would sell their soul if it meant getting …Read more […..]
