The Village of Beach Park currently contracts police protection services through Lake County Sheriff's Department. Residents are provided 24 hour emergency response through 911 dispatching. The Village is also provided dedicated patrol services. The Village has had this strong relationship with LCSD for many years, simply because it has worked to keep crime down in a very cost effective way.
The Lake County Sheriff's Department (non-emergency 847-549-5200) is comprised of multiple divisions: Highway Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Court Security, Communications, Warrants, Civil Process, Records, Marine Unit, Reserve Unit and Lake County Emergency Management Agency. Through the specific function in each, these organizational components enable the Sheriff's Office to accomplish the primary objective of providing effective police protection and service, in a coordinated fashion to the residents of Beach Park, as well as other areas of the Lake County, perhaps even better than a small Village Police Department.
Just a reminder to residents, please make sure to keep your valuables safe and secure by locking your doors, and report suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s Department.
