Utica’s police chief passes away after battling cancer

Posted by wlpo on May 13, 2015

An officer who worked for both the La Salle and Utica Police Departments has died.

Mark Wren died Tuesday after a battle with cancer. He was the acting chief of police in Utica and also was a sergeant for the La Salle PD.

He was hired in La Salle the same day in 1988 as Chief Rob Uranich. Uranich says it’s a very sad day for La Salle PD, calling Wren an excellent officer and that he will be greatly missed.

Funeral service information hasn’t been released yet.
