The Village of Homer Glen has contracted with the Will County Sheriff's Department to provide police services since 2000. The mission of the Will County Sheriff's Department is the protection of human life, the reduction of crime, providing and maintaining a safe, peaceful environment in which constitutional rights are safeguarded.
Sheriff's Department personnel assigned to Homer Glen are committed to the "Community Oriented Policing" philosophy, working in partnership with the Village, schools, businesses and residents to serve and protect the community. Sheriff's Department personnel regularly participate in events that go beyond their daily duties, participating in charitable events throughout the year.
Although the Sheriff's Department is headquartered in Joliet, there is a police sub-station adjacent to the Homer Glen Village Hall, which is located at 14240 W. 151'st Street. The sub-station is not continuously manned, but is utilized for shift meetings or the processing of paperwork. If emergency services are needed, dial 9-1-1. If non-emergency police services are needed, you can contact the dispatch center at 815-727-8575.
