Programs & Services
The Police Chaplain unit of the Roscoe Police Department was started in May of 2009 by Chief Jamie Evans and Cpl. Billy Weston.
The Chaplains purpose is to minister to all that desire their help. They deliver death notices, counsel those in need and are available to the officers of the Police Department. They are often times called out by the Police Department day or night to assist in particularly difficult incidents. They are responsible for a duty week beginning on Monday and ending on Sunday. The Chaplains are also asked to ride with officers from time to time.
Neighborhood Watch, Block Watch, Town Watch, Apartment Watch, Crime Watch — no matter what it’s called, this is one of the most effective and least costly answers to crime. Watch groups are a foundation of community crime prevention, they can be a stepping stone to community revitalization.
Please contact Deputy Chief Derek Lee if you would like to set up a neighborhood watch meeting by contacting the Roscoe Police Department at 815-623-7338 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
