About the Willow Springs Police Department 

According to the Willow Springs Police Department, “The Village of Willow Springs Police Department was originally founded in 1952 and has grown to a current Department of seventeen full-time and twelve part-time police officers.  We are constantly striving to make improvements to the Department that will allow us to provide the Community with a full service, professional Police Department. Current requirements are that all prospective police officers have a minimum of two years of college credit, or prior military service. 

We have also recently increased the level of experience and professionalism within the Department by hiring several lateral entry officers and experienced part-time officers.  These are all officers that were previously employed by other law enforcement agencies, are already State certified, and bring varying degrees of experience and knowledge with them to Willow Springs.  Some of the services that we currently provide to the community include regular patrol activities, overweight truck and traffic enforcement, investigations and juvenile officers, motorcycle patrol officers, bicycle patrol officers, evidence technicians, and some varied counseling services. 

We have translators available that are fluent in Polish, Russian, German and Spanish, and we are providing the D.A.R.E. program to sixth grade students at Willow Springs School.  We also participate in several multi-jurisdictional organizations to provide needed manpower to the Village in times of a local emergency, any incident that might require an emergency response team, or high profile crimes that require specialized investigations.  We are also working to solidify our staffing and structure in order to provide you with a Department that has an appropriate number of supervisors and subordinate personnel required to carry out our assigned duties.
