The Glen Carbon Police Department is a proactive department with strong ties to the community.
With twenty-three sworn officers, eight full-time, and five part-time civilian employees, it is a rapidly developing department. In addition to conventional police services such as patrol and investigations, the department is an ILEAS and Major Case Squad participant.
The Glen Carbon Police Department places great value on education, training, and skill development. Officers are encouraged to attend in-service and regional training events, and to develop specialized skills. The Village of Glen Carbon pays tuition and book expenses for its police officers who are pursuing a college education, up to and including a Master’s degree, in approved academic disciplines.
