Illinois House honors Trooper Cynthia Pfau

The Illinois House of Representatives on Tuesday adopted a resolution sponsored by Rep. Keith Sommer (R-Morton) congratulating District 8 Illinois State Trooper Cynthia Pfau on winning five gold medals at the Texas Police Games earlier this year.

Pfau, an eight-year veteran of the Illinois State Police, is a motorcycle officer, field training officer and a member of the Region III Crowd Control team. During the 39th annual Texas Police Games, hosted by the Texas Police Athletic Foundation, Pfau took gold medals in the triathlon, 5k run, 10k run, mountain bike race, and sniper/precision rifle competition.

Trooper Pfau was joined in the House chamber by members of her family and fellow troopers from the Illinois State Police post at Metamora.
