Mission Statement: To provide the highest level of public safety services to everyone, in cooperation with the community in a partnership of equality and integrity, in a spirit of unity and mutual trust.
The Public Safety Department was established in 1954 when the Village combined the Police and Fire Departments into one single, cross-trained department. Today, our officers are cross-trained as certified police officers, firefighters and medical first responders. This level of efficiency allows the Village to provide a high level of emergency services to the community at a reduced cost when compared to municipalities utilizing traditional, separate police, fire and emergency medical components. The Public Safety Department includes the Police Service Division, Fire Service Division and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Division. Learn more about each of the divisions here.
