Patrol Division Responsibilities

The Patrol Division is comprised of sergeants and police officers. Patrol is dedicated to the safety and preservation of the Village's safety by patrolling the streets of Western Springs.

These officers respond to approximately 8,000 calls per year. In addition to answering calls for service, Officers patrol neighborhoods on a regular basis and check businesses both during operational hours and after hours.

Frequently, Officers take the time to ensure closed businesses are locked and secured in an effort to aid merchants in preventing burglary. Traffic safety is a major priority for patrol officers, investigating an average of 300 traffic crashes each year.
