Community Policing Programs
A fundamental philosophy of the Romeoville Police Department is to reduce crime by enhancing our relationship with the citizens we serve. One way of working toward our common goal of crime reduction is to maintain easy communication access to the Police Department by our residents. All police agencies rely on information given to them to investigate crimes. To enhance this communication effort, we are offering a method by which residents can communicate via email directly and confidentially. Click here to complete and submit the Contact Us form.
You can also click here to send an email directly to the Community Oriented Policing Division to find out about programs, presentations, and information regarding Code Enforcement, and the Crime Free Housing ordinance.
By ordinance, all alarm systems must be registered with the Village. There are penalties for not registering your alarms system with the Village.
