Welcome to the Beecher Police Department Website!
We hope that you will find our community a pleasant
and safe place to live, as well as a unique place to visit. Located
about 37 miles south of Chicago, Beecher has continued to grow in
both residential and commercial properties and also includes an industrial
park. As the growth continues, the Village maintains the security
of a small town.
The Beecher Police Department has a proud heritage of service to our
fine community and that is evident in our motto, "A proud past and
a promising future." Our officers are specifically trained to provide
security and law enforcement services to our community in a fair,
friendly and efficient manner. We believe in the community policing
philosophy and continually strive to bridge the gap between police
and citizens. Our mission is to provide responsive, respectful, fair
and professional service to 'all individual contacts and the general
public while enforcing the laws of the State of Illinois and ordinances
of the Village of Beecher.
The members of the police department are more than a collection of
employees. It takes a unique and special person to dedicate themselves
towards the service and well-being of others. Our police officers
and civilian staff are dedicated to public service and maintain the
highest values and ethics in addressing all areas of law enforcement
while fostering cooperation with citizens, business owners and their
staff and other Village employees.
As Chief of Police, I am proud to be a member of
this fine organization and community. If, at any time, we can be of
assistance to you, please feel free to contact us either by phone
or e-mail. We look forward to being of service to you.
Jeffrey L. Weissgerber
Chief of Police
