The work of the Police Department consists of the preservation of the public peace and order, the apprehension of offenders, the protection of persons and property under the laws of the State, and the enforcement of the ordinances of the City.
The Lincoln Park police department has partnered with Nixle, an online public safety broadcast system , to implement its Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.
When an incident occurs, our police department has the capability to send it to either the entire community or a specific area within the community. Any type of notice can be sent to thousands of people within minutes, notifying them of a problem occurring in their area. These notices can range from missing or wanted individuals, to traffic delays, to natural disasters.
