The Palos Park Police
agency is a full service law enforcement agency with twenty-nine sworn
officers who patrol the village twenty-four hours a day. We staff our
field officers predicated on peak days and times when we need the most staff
available. We utilize Southwest Central Dispatch, which has an
Enhanced 911 system, which also serves the Palos Fire Protection District.
Some of the programs we offer include, Child Safety
Fingerprinting, a Police Cadet program for teens, and an Emergency Service
and Disaster Agency (E.S.D.A.) plan. A Vacation Watch program, Home
Safety checks. The “You are Not Alone” program which provides for senior
well-being checks and the File for Life program. Additionally we offer
a Senior Safety I.D. Bracelet program and a volunteer Citizen on Patrol
We work very closely with the Orland Park and Palos
Heights Police Department’s; we also train jointly with their officers. We
are part of the Southwest Suburban Major Case Unit and the South Suburban
Major Crimes Task Force.
The Palos Park Police Department is a very service
oriented organization and we place quality service first and foremost.
