Chief Steven Neubauer has been with the Elmhurst Police Department for more than 30 years. He remembers what it was like to go out on patrol, and he even misses it sometimes. The department was established in 1925 and consisted of a police chief and four sworn officers. Today, the department has a staff of 70 full-time officers. Elmhurst enjoys a low crime rate, and the police department offers many programs to keep residents safe, including programs for kids that address drug abuse, traffic safety, Internet safety, and potential problems at school. The department also helps educate the public about identity theft, and provides a Citizen's Police Academy for those who would like to learn more about the Elmhurst police.
