Police Department

The Wheaton Police Department is working to make the City of Wheaton a safe place to live and work by forming partnerships with its citizens and businesses. We are committed to provision of the highest quality of police services. We believe you will enjoy living in the community and will be satisfied with the service you receive from the Police Department.

Our philosophy is that we must work in partnership with the community in order to function effectively. We dispatch all police officers and community service officers through a centralized 9-1-1 off-site dispatch facility. When requesting the services of an officer, please call 9-1-1. You should contact the department at its administrative telephone number, 630-260-2161, with any questions, comments or suggestions. The police facility is located at 900 W. Liberty Drive and is accessible each day of the year on a 24-hour basis.

The Police Department offers a variety of special services to the community, including, but not limited to:

  • Crime Prevention: Police officers will be scheduled to conduct home security inspections as well as a public speaker's bureau for a variety of law enforcement related topics. Please call Chief of Police James Volpe in advance to schedule at 630-260-2161.
  • Traffic Unit: This unit's responsibilities include target speed enforcement, serious cash investigation and reconstruction, and truck enforcement.
  • Community Service Officers (CSOs): These employees provide residents with assistance in animal control, bicycle registrations, and parking and traffic control. Call 9-1-1 to have a community service officer respond to your location. 

The Wheaton Police Department's perpetual commitment is to assist residents in preventing crime and fostering positive relations between the community and the Police Department. Each member of the Wheaton Police Department acknowledges a proprietary interest in his/her assignment and his/her important role in crime prevention.

We trust that you will share with us the high quality of life that we believe the City of Wheaton has to offer.
