Child Safety Seats

The Roscoe Police Department has two child safety seat technicians; Cpl. William Weston and Chief Jamie Evans.  Please contact us to schedule a child safety seat inspection.  815-623-7338 or by email,

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading killer of kids in the United States.  Many injuries and deaths can be prevented by properly using car seats.  With four out of five seats misused, certified technicians provide a valuable and free service to parents and caregivers concerned with safe transport for their most precious cargo.

Community Involvement

Meet with business owners/managers, leaders in the community, neighborhood watch members and assess:

- Security Needs
- Current trends in crime
- Develop action plans to reduce property loss
- Become points of contact for future needs
- Provide greater security for students in and around school by:

- Directed patrols around school grounds before and after school, and during school related events.
- Conducting walk-throughs when school is in session and during school related events.
**We have just established a School Safety Committee comprised of one part-time officer who works closely with the schools, and 3 full time officers. The officers meet quarterly to discuss school safety among themselves and with school officials. The officers also conduct training with the schools on a regular basis.
