The Enforcement Division is broken down in to 2 distinct, but interwoven bureaus, the Patrol Bureau and the Special Operations Bureau.
The Patrol Bureau oversees law enforcement for all of the unincorporated areas of Will County and Homer Glen. The Patrol Bureau is also responsible for handling records management for all police incident reports. Telecommunications/911 calls and Traffic Enforcement also fall under the Patrol Bureau.
The Special Operations Bureau encompasses the many specialized units within the Sheriff’s Office. These are: Criminal Investigations (Criminal Investigations Section, Crime Scene Investigations, Social Worker), Gang Suppression Unit / K9, Warrants Unit, Homeland Security, Special Operations Group (S.O.G.) and those deputies assigned to outside agencies (i.e. FBI, DEA, TriCounty Auto Theft, MANS, etc.)
This nationally recognized section is highly trained and motivated. The current Traffic Section is commanded by a Sergeant, and includes 7 deputies, a Coordinator and an Administrative Clerk. Three deputies are experienced Traffic Re-constructionists and have attended Northwestern University’s prestigious Traffic Institute. The two newest deputies in the section, as well as the the deputy in charge of vehicle seizures, have recently attended reconstruction courses at Northwestern University’s Traffic Institute.
The Traffic Section has a primary responsibility to promote traffic safety throughout Will County. Major Crash Investigation; Hit and Run investigations; DUI, Speeding and Occupant Restraint enforcement; Traffic Safety education, Child Passenger Safety education; and conducting Special Projects are all part of the duties of personnel assigned to the Traffic Section.
