A Message from The Chief of Police

It is the policy of the Glen Carbon Police Department to investigate suspicious persons, incidents and other activities that officers encounter on patrol. It is also the intent of the department to respect and protect the constitutional rights of all individuals during law enforcement contacts and/or enforcement actions. The department encourages its officers to initiate citizen contacts as a means to stay informed about activities and concerns of persons in the community.

I believe education, training, and discipline are the pillars of a successful police department. With active participation in the Major Case Squad, Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS), DEA, and MECAT, Glen Carbon officers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their community and develop into the future leaders in law enforcement. We will continue to work hand-in-hand with our community to address the concerns of all residents.

If you have any questions about our department, please contact my office.
