The Patrol Division of the LaSalle Police Department is the "backbone" and most visible division of the police department. Citizens and visitors to the City of LaSalle enjoy quality service from the 18 certified professional officers assigned to the patrol division. This division operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The patrol division is made up of both marked and unmarked patrol units, which includes one of the most experienced K-9 officers in the Illinois Valley. The patrol staff is normally the first to respond to service and emergency calls. While everyone else typically runs away from trouble, and other emergency services such as Fire and Ambulance will wait until a scene is secure, these dedicated officers are the first to respond toward it, placing their lives in danger on a daily basis.
While many of the patrol officer's duties are reactive, the officers of the LaSalle Police Department Patrol Division take great pride in their proactive approach toward law enforcement, stopping many crimes before they happen or while they are occurring.
The LaSalle Police Department recognizes the tireless effort and dedication put forth on a daily basis by the members of the LaSalle Police Department Patrol Division and would like to thank them for their professionalism, service and endless sacrifices...
