Meet Officer Kyle Belke and Officer Ryan Yaeger

We proudly introduce our two newest police officers - Officer Kyle Belke and Officer Ryan Yaeger. Both Kyle and Ryan were sworn in on Wednesday, December 14.

Officer Belke is a graduate of Northern Illinois University. After graduation, Kyle joined the United States Marine Corp and served two tours overseas - in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait.  In early January, Kyle will begin his 12-week academy training at the Police Training Institute at the University of Illinois, after which he will enter the field training portion of his training.

Officer Yaeger is a graduate of Eastern Illinois University. Ryan comes to us from the Momence (IL) Police Department where he has been a police officer for a little more than a year. The best part is that Ryan has already completed academy training. Thus, he will be going directly into the Department's Field Training Program.

Congratulations to Officer Belke and Officer Yaeger! We're glad you have chosen VHPD as a career and we wish you both many long and happy years as a member of our family.
