Pete Green (pictured left), a 25-year veteran of the Park Forest Police Department, was named Park Forest’s new police chief earlier this month. Green succeeds former Police Chief Cliff Butz who retired from the department.

Green holds a masters degree in public safety administration from Calumet College, and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

Park Forest’s new police chief is also a veteran of the U.S. Army. Green’s father, Wally Green, retired for the Park Forest Police Department as a lieutenant.

Chief Green selected Paul Winfrey (pictured right), a 17-year veteran of the Park Forest Police Department, to fill his vacated role of deputy police chief. Winfrey will oversee the Administrative Service Division of the department. Winfrey holds a bachelors degree in criminal justice from Governors State University and is currently enrolled in graduate courses in Public Administration at Governors State University.
