The Rockford Police Department is committed to a strong working relationship with the community. Our "Community Policing" philosophy builds partnerships between community groups, organizations, businesses, and Rockford residents.
24-Hour Police Protection: Quality Service.
Rockford's own police officers are always available to quickly respond to emergency and non-emergency calls within the City. (Meanwhile, area townships must share County police protection.) Rockford Police are also trained to respond to medical calls with the Rockford Fire Department.
