I would like to take this opportunity to present you with our mission statement. The mission of this police department, like all police departments, is simple - to protect and serve the citizens of Okawville. The Okawville Police Department's primary responsibility is to protect our citizens against any and all who would attempt to harm them, to the best of our ability.
Personal crimes are a major concern for any law enforcement agency and our department is very responsive to these crimes. Wherever and whenever possible, our department provides a police presence to prevent these types of crimes. Wen crimes are committed, our department uses whatever resources are necessary to solve the crime and apprehend the violator.
Our department is very patrol-oriented and we fell that we can avert property crime by visibility. Patrol is our most useful function; it provides a platform for traffic enforcement, crime prevention and community relations. Our community is primarily a bedroom community with an aged population. The sight of a police car in the neighborhood is often a comforting sight.
In addition to providing service to the Village of Okawville, our department is often the first line service providers to the citizens of Washington County. Our officers are often the only law enforcement on duty in the northwestern corner of the county. The officers of the Okawville Police Department are the primary back-up officers for the Illinois State Police, Washington County Sheriff's Department, and the Nashville Police Department.
In closing, the Okawville Police Department views our community as a big family and will provide whatever service we can, whenever we can. Our 1400 citizens depend on us to provide them law enforcement services, and the members of this department are proud to do so!
