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. By using the above Contact Us Form link you can send an email directly to the Police Department. The contents of your email will be kept confidential. If you will be supplying information to assist us with an investigation, we ask that you be as specific as possible. We may contact you via email for clarification of information provided.
