Master Sergeant Calvin Brown is Recipient of “Rising Shields of Law Enforcement.”

SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP) recently named their 2015 “Rising Shields of Law Enforcement” recipients.  The recipient in the state agency category is Illinois State Police Master Sergeant (M/Sgt.) Calvin Brown.

The “Rising Shields of Law Enforcement” represents the brightest, young, up-and-coming leaders in law enforcement.  Recipients are nominated by their agency and then rated by the ILACP based on leadership attributes, law enforcement initiatives, personal beliefs in the value of law enforcement, and peer recognition and engagement.

In order to be considered for the award nominees must be under the age of 45 and below the rank of Deputy Chief or Lieutenant.  The award serves to educate the public about the many contributions of sworn officers and others who work in law enforcement.

“M/Sgt. Brown’s leadership skills and mentoring abilities have been instrumental in the investigative efforts of his work unit,” stated Major Chris Trame.  “He continues to set the example when it comes to leading crime fighting efforts in the Metro East,” Trame continued.

M/Sgt. Brown has 18 years of law enforcement experience and has been with Illinois State Police since 2001.  As an investigator with the ISP, M/Sgt. Brown has been assigned to the gangs unit, the violent crimes unit, and he has served as an intelligence officer.  Prior to 2001 M/Sgt. Brown was a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department. 

M/Sgt. Brown is currently assigned as the squad supervisor for the Metro East Police Assistance Team (MEPAT).  The MEPAT provides criminal investigative efforts and offers intelligence based support to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
