Evanston can be extremely proud of its Police Department’s efforts to create a new style of policing. Our mission reflects a balance of traditional and innovative policing methods, supporting our view that crime and disorder problems are most successfully addressed by police working in partnership with the community.

Our programs and services have been designed to reach out, connect, and work with the community. We have developed a way of policing with our community – a Partnership – one that is uniquely Evanston’s. At the foundation of our Partnership philosophy is a problem-solving strategy that relies on a supportive and involved public, with frequent contacts between us, and a commitment, not only from the department, but also from the community we serve.
