Congratulations to one of our own C4C Board members for 30 years of service to the Peru Police Department. Deputy Chief Pyszka is a true asset to this community and our organization. Thank you for your service.

We are proud to call him our friend. πŸ’™πŸ’™Deputy Chief Robert Pyszka started his career 30 years ago today with the PPD and is still going strong. All of us our honored we can claim him as our brother officer. He is by far the best Deputy Chief any agency could ask for.

The Support Services Division is under the command of Deputy Chief Pyszka who is also the second in command for the police department. He joined the Peru Police Department in October of 1990 now having served the City of Peru for 3 decades. He first served as a patrol officer for eleven years. During that time he was assigned several additional duties including field training officer, abandoned vehicle officer, sex offender liaison officer, bike patrol officer and at various times as officer in charge. In November of 2001, he was chosen for a position in the Criminal Investigations Division. During his time in investigations, he was the court liaison officer, evidence custodian, crime scene technician, and lead Fraternal Order of Police liaison. While serving the City of Peru as an investigator, two of the largest burglaries occurred in LaSalle County history. Both cases were solved after a lengthy investigation.

On January 1, 2007 then recently appointed Police Chief Douglas Bernabei named Robert Pyszka as the first Deputy Chief of Police in Peru police department history. During the nearly fourteen-year tenure as Deputy Chief of Police, he has at various times supervised the Detective Division, Dispatch Center, Patrol Division, and now currently the Support Services Division. The Deputy Chief of Police is currently responsible for many duties some of which include technology in the department, training component, grant writing, and coordinating all community events and scheduling.

Deputy Chief Pyszka is a graduate of Illinois Valley Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. He has also graduated from the University of Illinois Police Training Institute and has earned a certificate from the School of Law Enforcement and Justice Administration, which was sponsored through Western Illinois University.
