We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Police Sergeant Jeff DeYoung, a longtime, faithful employee of the Village of South Holland.

Jeff was only 44 years old. He died peacefully in his sleep, of what appears to be natural causes.

Sergeant DeYoung had just completed 21 years of service to the Village of South Holland in December of 2021. He was promoted to the role of sergeant just months earlier.

He was born and raised in South Holland. His childhood home is located just around the corner from the Police Department building.

He leaves behind his wife Tracy and their two children, along with many family members who are residents or natives of South Holland.

“Jeff was an incredibly valuable member of our team,” says Police Chief Shawn Staples. “Not only was he a terrific police officer, but he was well respected by his fellow officers and by South Holland residents alike. He was affable, thoughtful, and did his job well. We will miss him greatly.”

Details of Sergeant DeYoung’s memorial service will be announced as they become available.

As we enter the Holiday shopping season we would like to remind you of a few shopping safety tips:

- Be aware of your surroundings
- Trust your instincts; if you are uncomfortable with a person or
place get away

- Keep your cash in a front pocket and carry your purse upfront
and close to your body
- Only use ATM's in the daytime or well lit public places.
- Don't forget to tug on ATM card readers to ensure they have
not been covered with a skimming device

- If you are bringing children out to a crowded area, snap a
quick pic of them with your cellphone before you head our
for the day. Should you get separated you have a picture to
show security/police exactly what they are wearing and how
their hair is styled

THINK SAFE, ACT SAFE

5 Arrested After Elderly Woman Held at Gunpoint in Home Invasion

"If you see something, say something." Nobody knows your neighborhood better than you. If you see something that YOU think is suspicious, don't wait, call the police. We will check out the issue and make sure everything is "ok."

If this caller waited just a couple of minutes to decide if what she saw was "important enough" to call the police, the results may have been much different. Thank you for being involved in your community!!
