Operations is made up of the uniformed Patrol Division, the Investigations (Detective) Division, the plainclothes Mission Team unit, the Police Records Division, and various specialty units. The main focus of Operations is responding to calls for service from the public, both emergency and non-emergency, and maintaining peace, order and safety for everyone.
*Any call requiring dispatch of an officer, whether emergency or not, should be made to 911*
Operations is overseen by the Chief of Police, who provides leadership, direction and vision to the Department in the fulfillment of its overall mission. The Department is led by interim Police Chief Michael McLean, along with Deputy Chief Brett Kaczorowski. Together, the Chief and Deputy Chief of Police bring years of progressive law enforcement experience to the City of Elmhurst.
