As Chief of Police, I welcome you to the Alton Police Department on-line. I invite you to browse through this new website to learn what the Alton Police Department is doing to make our community a better and safer place to live and work.

Our mission is to work in partnership with our community to provide a professional, progressive, and community oriented level of service to our people. We strive to serve our people with the up most courtesy and concern for their needs with emphasis on integrity and fairness. We work toward the attainment of public confidence from all of our citizens and to protect their constitutional rights.

In keeping with our mission statement, the Alton Police Department is consistently seeking and striving to find new and innovative ways to deliver service to our residents and visitors that will give them a feeling of personal safety and property security. I believe that our officers and support staff offer a professional level of quality service to the people in our community. We are always willing to work with our citizens to form partnerships that will afford us a better opportunity to improve the quality of traditional police service, but through other social connecting programs like our Weed & Seed program, Summer Youth Basketball program, Project Alert, Neighborhood Watch Groups, Citizens Police Academy's, and our National Night Out kick-off events. We also maintain an active Law Enforcement Explorer Post and a Police Cadet Program.

I am proud of all our police officers, support staff, and civilian employees who have demonstrated a commitment to personal integrity while providing a professional level of service to our citizens. I encourage you to browse through our website, which will provide you with information on the services, and other resources available here at the Alton Police Department.

If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints, please feel free to contact me directly.
