Happy Spring!  Be Safe this weekend!  With the nice weather please be alert for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcycles.

 

Comments From The Chief

The Warren Police Department hopes everyone has a Happy and Safe Spring!

With Spring upon us, please take care and give yourself a little extra time driving.  With spring sports starting  = baseball games to start at Meridian Park, there will be more children/adults walking from their cars, homes etc. to the ball field.  Please remember there are stop signs on Clinton Street near the entrance to Meridian Park and also on Jefferson Street at S. Water Street, and W. Jefferson Street at Chestnut Street by the Warren Schools.  Just a couple of minutes could be the difference between a life or injury/death.  Please drive with caution and watch for pedestrians and other vehicles.  Remember it is ILLEGAL to pass a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing and the stop arm out.

If you have any concerns, you may reach me at (815)745-2418 Monday through Friday.  We have officers working at night and on the weekends and if they are not in the office please leave a message and they will contact you.  If you need an officer for a nonemergency please call (815)745-2218.  If you have an EMERGENCY please call 911.

The Full-Time Officers for the Department are Chief Bryan Bohnsack, Sgt. Luke Barker and Patrolman Aaron Smith.  We also have 10 Part-Time Officers and 1 civilian in the Department.
