Each section of the Department takes part in community relations. Activities include involvement
in community events such as the Winnetka Children’s Fair; annual bicycle rodeo; and Chamber of Commerce functions, as well as tours of the Police Station for school groups, Scout
troops, and other youth organizations. Members of the Operations Section
are available to speak to schools, community groups and special functions.
The Department offers
college student internships
on a limited basis.
To be successful, the Winnetka Police Department reaffirms its view that one
of the basic and continuing responsibilities of every member of the agency is
to strengthen citizens' confidence in and respect for their Police Department.
