National Thank A Police Officer Day!
We thank you Waterman Police Department!
In this original prairie town the first settlers lived in abandoned teepees before their homes were built Pottawatomie Indians lived southwest of Waterman when the first settlers arrived in 1835.
Surveyed and plotted in March of 1872, the town was named in honor of Daniel Waterman, General Solicitor of the Chicago and Iowa Railroad which reached Waterman in December of 1870.
Through the years, Waterman has developed many family traditions and welcomes all to share in its historic claims and family atmosphere.
Waterman Area Heritage Society Museum – Organized in 1994 by a group of citizens who wanted to preserved the history of Waterman and the family heritage of this town in DeKalb County, Illinois. The museum is open Saturday’s from 1-3pm. Check out their facebook page!
This is National Law Enforcement Week. Please remember those officers out there in your neighborhoods and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
Forty Police Officers have lost their lives this year so far, which is the lowest number in over a decade. Community support has a lot to do with this result.
The Village of Waterman is a wonderful place to work and we look forward to joining you in building this community. Keep us in your thoughts this week.
Chief Joe Cicci and the entire Waterman Police Department
