Morris native appointed to Board of Directors for Children's Advocacy Centers of Illinois

Morris High School graduate and local resident Jeff Brown was recently appointed as a director for the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Illinois. Brown, a candidate for Grundy County State’s Attorney, currently serves as an assistant state’s attorney for James W. Glasgow at the Will County State’s Attorneys Office.

Brown also heads the Will County State’s Attorney animal cruelty unit and serves as a dog handler to a Labrador retriever named “Kiwi” who comforts abused children when giving statements to police or testifying in court.

The Children’s Advocacy Center coordinates and provides a comprehensive response to child abuse throughout Illinois.

Its mission is to “support and sustain Illinois’ Children’s Advocacy Centers through leadership in resource development, education and collaboration.”

It was his role prosecuting felony sex crimes in Will County and his passion for protecting children that supported his appointment to the Children’s Advocacy Center. Brown said he was honored to accept the appointment, calling children “society’s most precious commodity, and there should be no limit to protecting them.”

Brown credited his mother, Lori Linn, for instilling a work ethic and passion toward helping the most vulnerable members of society. He also thanked Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow for the opportunities he has provided and his guidance making him an ambassador for both children and animals.

“Without Mr. Glasgow’s support and belief in me, none of this would be a reality,” Brown added.
