Message from the director

Welcome to the Itasca Police Department website. Whether you are a resident, business owner, or visitor, please know the Itasca Police Department is here for you. 

As Director of Police, I am honored to serve alongside the men and women of the Itasca Police Department. Comprised of 21 sworn and 4 non-sworn members, the department is a highly trained and dedicated to safeguarding the lives and property of our residents and businesses. State-accredited through the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP), the Itasca Police Department is committed to treating all individuals with dignity and respect. Every officer is equipped with a body worn camera for the interactions they encounter and for full transparency of how we provide 21 century policing to everyone we serve.  

The department also follows a community based policing philosophy which requires officers to work with citizens to identify community problems, determine the underlying causes, and develop solutions that address these causes in order to resolve the problem. Maintaining a safe place to live, work, and play is our number one priority, and we cannot accomplish our goal without partnering with the local businesses and citizens that we have sworn to protect. Remember, if a safety concern is important to you, it’s important to us! Residents are encouraged to call 9-1-1, whether for a simple call or an emergency. Although we have a non-emergency telephone line, all police dispatches are coordinated through the consolidated 9-1-1 center. 

On behalf of the Itasca Police Department, I would like to thank the residents and business of Itasca for their continued faith and support in our department. It's our privilege to serve and protect you.


Robert O’Connor, Director of Police
