In this Department

The Police Department is staffed with 14 sworn positions, including a Chief, one (1) Commander, two (2) Sergeants, and ten (10) Patrol Officers.  Additionally, the Police Department employs a Records Assistant, 5 part-time sworn Police Officers, a part-time Investigations Coordinator (IC), and 1 part-time Community Service Officer (CSO).

The Police Department utilizes a fleet of eight squads containing VHF mobile radios and mobile computers, which provides immediate access to State and Federal data sources. 

Walk-in services, clerical duties, and call-taking of non-emergency telephone lines are performed by staff for approximately 40 hours per week within the Lindenhurst Police Department.  After hours, non-emergency telephone lines are forwarded to Glenview Dispatch Center, our contract service provider. 

All landline emergency “911” calls are answered directly by our designated Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), which is FoxComm Dispatch Center.  The police calls are then transferred to the Glenview Dispatch Center.  Calls are dispatched to the Lindenhurst Police personnel by way of their STARCOM21 digital portable radios, in-car mobile data computers, or by regular or cellular 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.
