Eddie Torrance's family moved around a lot when he was a child, but settled into RHA's Fairgrounds family site when he was in middle school. Because security was significantly more lax at that time, gang influence existed there, so Eddie got on his bike and rode away, visiting the YMCA and friends off-site.
At the urging of his mother, Vanessa, he was determined to keep his young life on track through sports, school and positive friendships. Vanessa set the tone for all her children and encouraged them to work hard, get an education and lift themselves out of poverty. She did it by example; she went to school while raising her kids and became a practicing nurse. She eventually purchased the home she had lived in with RHA section 8 support and still lives there today, proudly and happily.
For his part, Eddie enrolled in Western Illinois University, finished his Bachelors in Florida, and earned a respected position of leadership as a Sergeant of the Rockford Police Department. He visits Fairgrounds as often as he can and strives to influence young residents in the most positive way possible: by example.

Meet Officer Eddie Torrance: An Officer Who Grew up at Fairgrounds One of the other things the Rockford Housing Authority other than breaking ground on new projects has been doing is promoting its most inspiring residents.
...
Officer Eddie Torrance of the Rockford Police Department grew up at Fairgrounds. His address was 1032 School Street. While most of the stories we tell you about the projects can be depressing, this one is different.
A Fairgrounds resident said, "What cha'll talking about?"
Torrance said, "Talking about me when I lived out here."
...
Torrance grew up in the projects. His mom, a single mother of four boys, put herself through school to become a nurse.
He said, "I benefited from the fact that I knew she was going out to do something and I figured I could do something different with myself too. I used to look outside and always see the sirens wailing by down on Whitman Street and I always told myself hey, that's what I want to do."
That's exactly what he did. He's been with the Rockford Police Department since 1994 patroling his old stomping grounds.
He said, "Everytime I see a young girl out there or a young guy out that says, 'hey you don't know what it's like to be a young black person down here in Fairgrounds,' I can tell them 'I was, I was there.'"
...
I commend Officer Torrance for not only taking the difficult road instead of the easy one, but more importantly he is using his own experiences to positively influence many that face tough choices and must endure negative peer pressure. What a great example for all of rockford. Thank you Officer Torrance, you and you brothers in blue are appreciated.
