Macomb Police Department

About Us

The Macomb Police Department is committed to providing residents and visitors of the Macomb Community with professional and responsive police services that enhance the quality of life and keep Macomb a great place to live, work, and visit.

Since 2012 the Macomb Police Department has been accredited by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police’s Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP). This certification recognizes the department’s commitment to the professional standards of modern law enforcement.

The department provides 24-hour coverage to the community and is comprised of 25 sworn officers, a K-9, and five civilian support personnel. The support personnel and two divisions – Patrol and Investigations – work together to ensure the public receives the highest quality of comprehensive services possible.

The department is very proud to offer several community engagement programs that encourage partnerships, shared understanding, transparency, and investment in our most precious resource – our youth. The department offers a year-round ride-along program, an annual Citizen Police Academy, a Police Explorer Program, K-9 demonstrations, and instruction on DARE curriculum. The department also has a School Resource Officer assigned within the Macomb School District.

In addition to these programs, the department works in partnership with area social services and public safety agencies to provide multi-disciplinary community problem-solving to the area.
