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.
