ISP Director Hiram Grau Receives Lifetime Achievement Award for Accomplishments in Law Enforcement

Chicago – Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau today accepted the Secretary of State’s Lifetime Achievement Award for his public service in law enforcement.

ISP Director Grau was recognized during a National Hispanic Heritage Month celebration at the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago and was joined by other award recipients from the civic and cultural arts communities.

“National Hispanic Heritage Month is a time when the accomplishments of the Hispanic community are honored across the country,” said Secretary of State Jesse White. “I am proud to recognize local artistic visionaries as we celebrate Hispanic heritage throughout the state of Illinois,” added Secretary White.

NBC 5 morning anchor and reporter Daniella Guzman, and ABC 7 reporter John Garcia emceed the awards ceremony.  Director Grau began his career in law enforcement in 1981 with the Chicago Police Department.  During his more than 30 years in law enforcement, Grau served many agencies in many capacities and his contributions were endless.   On April 11, 2011, Grau was appointed Director of the Illinois State Police by Governor Pat Quinn, the first Hispanic to hold this position.
