olice protection is provided by the Village of Roscoe Police Department and the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department. At present, the Roscoe Police Dept. employs 10 full-time and 5 part-time officers, with at least two squads on duty at a time. Each is equipped with an AED defibrillator.
The department is very community-oriented, as evidenced by its bike patrols, vacation checks, security surveys, citizen ride-a-long program, support of neighborhood watch programs, active participation in the D.A.R.E. program, et. al. It continues to enhance its service to the community through on-going training in such modern crimes as cyber-stalking and identity theft.
