Kane Police Chief Facing Charges

Kane’s police chief is accused of falsifying records.

42-year-old Brian Hillard is accused of submitting false information regarding firearms certification for three borough police officers.

According to papers filed in District Judge David Engman’s office Hillard did not qualify three officers for firearms in 2012, but listed that he had on the Municipal Police Officers’ Education and Training Commission’s Officer Recertification roster.

If he’s found guilty, Hillard could spend up to two years in prison, be fined up to $5,000 or both.

He is free on his own recognizance and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 9.
