doc wilson award

The Doc Wilson Award was created by the Illinois Fire and Police Commissioners Association in honor of A.C. “Doc” Wilson, a long time member of the Des Plaines Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, and a past president of the IFPCA.

For many years Doc Wilson was Chairman of the IFPCA Seminar Committee, and as such he was largely responsible for establishing the strong training programs that have become such an integral part of our seminars, both in the Commissioners Training Institute and the General Sessions.

This award can be given annually to any person who has advanced the cause of fire and police commissioners in Illinois.
