Geneva police sergeant honored for 25-year support of Illinois Special Olympics
Geneva Police Sergeant Dan Kott has been honored with the Flame of Hope Award for volunteering for 25 years to support the Special Olympics of Illinois.
The Flame of Hope Award is the highest honor offered by Special Olympics Illinois. One individual and one police department are chosen each year to receive the awards. Police departments are recognized for involvement with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
Kott was honored during a recent presentation in Bloomington.
“We are extremely proud of Sergeant Dan Kott for his contributions to Special Olympics,” Geneva Police Chief Eric Passarelli said. “Sergeant Kott’s selfless dedication to this important cause reflects very proudly on himself, the Geneva Police Department and the city of Geneva.”
Kott has facilitated quite a few fundraisers for the organization since 1990. He found a way to continue a fundraiser set up by Officer Keith Koza and his wife, Mary. Koza passed away in 2009. The fundraiser has continued with support from Mary Koza and Josef’s Elegante Meats & Deli.
