Western Illinois University's Office of Public Safety (OPS) will hold a benefit for Officer Krystal Scott Wednesday, January 10. Scott is undergoing treatment for stage four colon cancer. Proceeds from the benefit, which takes place from 4:30-8 p.m at the Macomb American Legion Post No. 6 (221 E. Washington St.), will go to Scott and her daughter.


"Krystal is a hard-working, dedicated and passionate individual, in and out of uniform, and she is a wonderful single mother to her daughter," said Det. Sarah Worthington, who is co-coordinating the benefit. "She is the last person to ever ask for help, but we want to provide her with as much support as we can." 


The benefit features a spaghetti dinner catered by Italian Express, along with silent and live auctions. The dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. The meal includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad and a beverage. Take-out is also available. 


Tickets are available at the door, or in advance at the Office of Public Safety/Mowbray Hall, or by calling (309) 298-1949 or emailing
