Our Patrol Division consists of 20 sworn officers.


These officers use several unmarked police cars and marked police cars to patrol. These vehicles consist of Ford Interceptors, Ram Pickups, and Dodge Durangos. The Department has been transitioning to 4-wheel drive vehicles due to inclement weather like snow and heavy rains.


Our vehicles are equipped with Video Cameras, RADAR, and Mobile Data Computers. Our mobile data computers are connected to a statewide system implemented by the Illinois Central Management Services called the Illinois Wireless Information Network(IWIN). Our officers are equipped with Body Worn Camera's. These cameras capture audio and video recordings of interactions between officers and the public. We also utilize ETHOS a Lexis Nexis program for crash reporting to the Illinois Department of Transportation.  Citizens can download crash reports utilizing


Our patrol officers are trained in several areas, but being a small department each of our officers take on specialized duties to help further services to our citizens. For example, we have three officers that participate in Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education (DARE) and teach in our schools. We also have officers that take care of our fleet of vehicles and some that do specialized training in weapons and tactics.


Our patrol force is always available and we always have a police officer available for calls in the Lincoln Area. Please call (217)732-2151 if you have a request for any law enforcement service.
