Interim Police Chief Price Dumas and Kankakee Mayor Chasity Wells-Armstrong.
State look into chief's actions

The Illinois State Police said Tuesday its investigation into a former Kankakee police official’s use of a state criminal database is “open and ongoing.”

However, a city attorney informed the City Council the day before he was told by state investigators that former interim Police Chief Price Dumas’ use of the database was “perfectly proper” and that no violations occurred.

Presented with the state police’s statement, the city’s corporation counsel, Michael McGrath, said in an email that his law firm had not been advised of any open state police investigation.
