Angels Among Us

The Angel Museum has launched a new initiative which began in May. The yearlong campaign, “Angels Among Us,” officially kicked off recognizing police officers in our local communities. Police officers in the City of Beloit, Town of Beloit and South Beloit were recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty in work and life for the protection of the cities they serve. City of Beloit Police Officer Lorenzo Henderson said the program is a chance to showcase the positive things that people do.“I think it’s particularly a positive thing to do in light of recent times,” he said, noting some wrongdoings and negative publicity concerning police. “This is a chance to showcase officers who go above and beyond.”
