We have a highly competitive recruitment and selection regiment that identifies high quality professional law enforcement officers.We pride ourselves on providing a high level of service, for our responsiveness to the community and at all times ethical and impartial enforcement of state statutes and village ordinances.

FOUND DOG UPDATE:
According to the Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation, her foster reports she is doing amazingly well and is super sweet. She is starting to put some weight on the surgery leg and getting around great.
She will stay with her foster family until she is fully healed and ready for adoption. Per the Garrido Rescue Foundation policy they will give the foster family the first option to adopt. If they pass, they will turn to the numerous applications they are receiving.
Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers and generosity to help with her veterinary care.
