Patrol Services Bureau
The Patrol Bureau strives to provide the highest level of professional police services to all people within the Village of Huntley. The patrol function is considered to be the primary law enforcement function and embraces much more than the act of patrolling.
Patrol officer duties include:
Patrol Bureau Programs
Patrol Officers are encouraged to get out of their squads to walk and talk with residents and at the businesses within the Village. This allows citizens to get to know our Officers and allows residents and business owners the opportunity to give feedback on our services.
Crisis Intervention Team
Officers who are specially trained in helping individuals suffering mental illnesses or developmental disabilities serve as Crisis Intervention Team members.
Officers who work on the bicycle patrol team are utilized for high visibility patrols, citizen contacts, special events and other identified patrol areas best suited for bicycle access.
Evidence Technician Team
Trained Evidence Technicians are responsible for processing crime scenes and accident scenes. This includes detection of latent fingerprints, crime scene photography, preservation and collection of physical evidence and crime scene sketching.
The Drone Team consists of authorized personnel who have received appropriate training, certification and licensure on the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or “drones”), to enhance the department’s mission of protecting lives and property when other means and resources are not available or are less effective. Team members must in strict compliance to relevant statutes, constitutional, privacy rights and the Federal Aviation Administration and 14 CFR 107 requirements. Members are responsible for maintaining the safe operation of the UAS, to include maintenance of the unit. The members deploy the UAS for uses such as search and rescue, crime scene documentation, evidence collection and accident investigation.
Truck Enforcement Team
Commercial trucking is a large business in Huntley and the suburban Chicago area. The Truck Enforcement Team exists to provide safe passage through Huntley for all motor vehicle traffic as they share the roads with larger and heavier commercial vehicles.
The primary duties of the Truck Enforcement Unit are:
- Enforcement of weight and size violations.
- Issuing permits for overweight and oversize vehicles using Village maintained highways.
- Education of local trucking companies in regards to local and State laws.

- Handling complaints from residents about truck specific problems.
- Checking trucks for safety and driver’s license classification violations.
To increase neighborhood safety, residents may contact the Area Sergeant with any speed or traffic complaints, Area Sergeants can establish directed patrols or a speed trailer to address the problem.
Geographic Based Policing
The Huntley Police Department is structured to deliver police services through the practice of geographic policing. The Village has been divided into four Areas (see descriptions below). An Area Sergeant is assigned to each section and that sergeant is responsible for the community needs in that specific area. The sergeant will track activity, analyze crime trends, monitor traffic issues, identify and respond to neighborhood problems and serve as a conduit between the community and the police department. If you have any needs related to the police department, please contact the appropriate Area Sergeant.
