The Special Services Division of the Evergreen Park Police Department assists the Patrol Division, and allows for closer contact with our community through educational programs and with the coordination of special events held in the village.
The officers assigned to the Special Service Division assist the Patrol Division through alternate means of patrol tactics. This is accomplished through the use of bicycles and ATVs which enable officers to patrol areas that are not easily accessible such as parks and along railroad tracks. This also allows for the officers to interact with the residents of the village on a personal level.
These officers also interact with our community through educational programs. These educational programs, including Officer Friendly, D.A.R.E., and G.R.E.A.T., are presented by the officers at the Evergreen Park schools to grades kindergarten through 8th grade. They also provide educational programs about railroad safety and programs for our senior citizens and local banks.
The division assists with the coordination of special events in the village such as The Day in the Park and the Independence Day parade.
