The Montgomery Police Department provides protection and policing services to more than 20,000 residents and businesses within the Village limits. Our department strives daily to provide exceptional public service, demonstrate community pride, and maintain public safety.

Our primary role is to prevent crime and enforce laws against those who fail to follow them. In addition, the Montgomery Police Department strives to make Montgomery a community where residents can feel safe and enjoy a high quality of life.

In 2005, the Montgomery Police Department moved to its current location on the Civic Center campus. The Montgomery Police Department has a state-of-the-art indoor shooting range that officers use for training. There is also a physical fitness center, community/training room, and housing for prisoners. The Community Room is available for use by government and community organizations only. To request use of the space, please fill out a Room Reservation Request Form (PDF). Requests can be sent via email.

Adoption of Shared Principles 

On March 22, 2018, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Illinois State Conference and the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police vowed: "by mutual affirmation to work together and stand together in our communities and at the state level to implement these values and principles, and to replace mistrust with mutual trust wherever, whenever, and however, we can." The Village of Montgomery adopted these principles as well in August 2018.
