Chief's Welcome

Welcome to the online home of the Lake Zurich Police Department. As Chief of Police, I am honored to serve the Village of Lake Zurich.  Policing in Lake Zurich is a rewarding opportunity and all of our officers are dedicated to providing excellent service. In order to deliver exceptional service to our residents, businesses, and visitors, it is imperative that we foster interdependent relationships, sharing information and interacting in a collaborative approach to maintaining public safety.

The Lake Zurich Police Department is focused on proactive community partnerships aimed at providing the best solutions and positive outcomes for problems we face as a community. Fighting crime and creating a safe environment is our highest priority. We cannot do it alone and that is why we cherish the relationship we have with the Lake Zurich community.

Technology has provided the foundation for tremendous leaps in the quality of lives we all enjoy.  It is also important that we take the time to connect person to person, neighbor to neighbor, and neighborhood to neighborhood to keep it that way. We, the members of the Lake Zurich Police Department, genuinely believe that through interpersonal interactions we can maintain the highest community standards, and we are proud to do our part.

As Chief of Police, I am committed to developing innovative approaches to collaborate with our community so that we can share information in meaningful ways. We will continue to use technology in our community caretaking strategies to maximize our efforts and resources. We are utilizing social media, among other means, to stay connected to those we serve and to get them valuable information in a timely, efficient manner. We will continue to seek opportunities to gain efficiencies and improve service through shared resources within our Village departments, as well as with our area law enforcement partners. I strongly encourage all community members to stay connected with the Village of Lake Zurich via the Benchmarks e-newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter as well as the community notification system (Everbridge) for emergency messages.

Thank you for visiting the Lake Zurich Police Department's portion of the Village’s website. I hope that you find the information contained here informative and useful.
