Oak Park will host a retirement party open to the public for former Chief of Police Anthony Ambrose on Tuesday, Nov. 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Nineteenth Century Club, 178 Forest Avenue.
Ambrose announced his retirement in August after serving the community for 34 years. He made the decision to step down from the position following surgery for a liver transplant. Village Manager Cara Pavlicek said the following in a news release related to his retirement:
“Chief Ambrose was essential to the success of Oak Park’s approach to law enforcement at the neighborhood level. His work as Chief will continue to shape the compassion demonstrated by law enforcement in this community for years to come. While I will miss working day to day with Tony, I am happy he will be starting a gratifying retirement.”
Parking is available in the garage next to the Nineteenth Century Club. Business casual is the recommended attire for the event.
