We are saddened to report the passing of Jim Padar, one of LEVA's founding members, its long-time webmaster and retired police officer of the Chicago Police Department.
He died peacefully at home July 11 after a lengthy and courageous battle against cancer.
Our thoughts are with his family which includes his son Jay, a Sergeant with the Chicago PD.
