CHICAGO — Chicago pension officials want the Cook County state's attorney's office to investigate Gregory J. Serratore, a former paramedic who claims to be permanently disabled from an on-the-job injury in the early 1980s but has been working as a police officer for the Cook County Forest Preserve District for the past 21 years. Serratore has collected more than $425,000 in disability payments from the city of Chicago since 1982, after injuring a hand while trying to fix a stalled ambulance.

Several doctors have filed reports saying he was left permanently disabled, unable to return to work as a Chicago paramedic.
