chief3Welcome to the City of Kewanee, Illinois and the Kewanee Police Department. The Kewanee Police Department and its staff are dedicated to providing the finest in law enforcement services to our community. To meet that challenge, the Kewanee Police Department has evolved simultaneous to the technologies in our field. The Department has enhanced 911 and will soon be Next-Gen 911 capable.  Among other enhancements are computer-aided dispatching and records management, electronic accident reporting, electronic training and reporting stations and electronic fingerprint capturing.  The Department, with the generous assistance of those we serve and with grants, has added digital video recording, electronic fingerprint capturing, mobile data computer terminals in the patrol fleet and body worn cameras for all patrol officers. Despite these improvements in technology, the Department continues to encourage professional customer service to the residents, businesses and visitors to the City. The bottom line is that our officers and staff must be able to communicate and interact with our community in a professional, forthright and courteous manner. By doing so, our department will cultivate a trusting, professional relationship with those that we serve.

As a lifelong resident of the City, it is with a vested interest that I, as well as our department’s staff, continue to work toward making our city the safest and most prosperous city it can be.
