What We Do

The Police Department is responsible for meeting the law enforcement needs of the community. In order to successfully meet this task, the department is focused on 16 different categories that impact on the delivery of said services. The categories are: general patrol, directed patrol, crime prevention, communications, community services, community relations, community resource referrals, criminal investigations, records, accident investigations, training, crime scene services, evidence custodial services, employee relations, social services, and fiscal management.

As Lake in the Hills has grown, so too has the police department. You will find in your review of the services available that the department has evolved into a full-service Police Department comprised of one of the most professional and community-minded groups of law enforcement professionals in the State of Illinois.
