In this Department

The Lindenhurst Police Department is comprised of sworn law enforcement positions including the Chief, Watch Commanders and full-time Police Officers.  The Village supplements its full-time staffing with part-time sworn Police Officers. Additionally, the Police Department employs a Community & Support Services Coordinator, a part-time Community Service Officer and records personnel.

The Police Department utilizes a fleet of 8 squad cars. All of the patrol cars are equipped with mobile computers giving access to state and federal data. Two durable "off road" mountain bicycles are also available for community policing purposes.

Non-emergency dispatching, clerical services and operation of non-emergency telephone lines are performed within the Lindenhurst facility, 60 hours per week by internal staff. This results in a period of 108 hours per week in which the non-emergency telephone lines are forwarded to Foxcomm, Lindenhurst's contract service provider for emergency 911 dispatching.
 
All land line emergency "911" calls are answered directly by Foxcomm. These calls are then dispatched to the Lindenhurst Police personnel by way of the portable radios, in-car mobile data terminals or by telephone when appropriate.
 
"911" calls made via cellular phones are initially dealt with by the Lake County Sheriff's Office dispatching center, which is located in Libertyville.  After determining the nature of the incident, and the appropriate jurisdiction, the call is routed to the proper dispatch center via the computer aided dispatch system.
