Police Department - Neighborhood Policing & Patrol
Police and Citizens Together Program
The North Aurora Police Department offers a community policing program that encourages residents to help maintain the quality of life within their own communities. The P olice A nd C itizens T ogether (PACT) program builds on our organizational philosophy of working in partnership with our citizens to enhance and/or preserve the quality of life in the Village, consistent with the values of our community. Under the PACT program, officers are assigned primary responsibility to work with residents in a specific area to address neighborhood issues and help solve problems. Neighborhood officers are responsible for maintaining contact with residents and to deal with issues as they develop and to follow-up with residents to verify that their needs have been addressed. Officers will request quarterly meetings with their resident group to share police and crime activity in their area, listen to neighborhood concerns, and provide information to help our residents better protect themselves from crime.
The North Aurora Police Department uses the practice of geographic policing to oversee the PACT program. The Village has been divided into three Districts and our three patrol sergeants are each responsible for a District. Each District Sergeant is responsible for the PACT officers and general problem solving in that area. If you have any needs related to the police department PACT program or ongoing problems, please contact the appropriate District Sergeant.
We started this program in 2010 and have assigned officers to over 20 different residential neighborhoods. If your area does not have a PACT Officer assigned and you would like to work with us to start introduce the program in your area, contact your District Sergeant.
Contact your PACT Officer and/or District Sergeant with any concerns you have such as traffic problems, crime problems, or disorder/nuisance problems.

The Patrol Division responds to calls for service, enforces traffic regulations, and patrols the village seeking out criminal and suspicious activity. As the largest and most visible division of the Police Department, the Patrol Division provides the first response to emergency and non-emergency incidents as well as conducts preliminary investigations. The Patrol Division maintains order, aids individuals, and identifies criminal offenders. Patrol Division personnel wear uniforms and drive marked patrol vehicles.
The Patrol Division performs a full range of police duties necessary to enforce the laws, identify problems, and resolve conflicts. The duties range from opening a vehicle with the keys locked inside to restraining and apprehending violent offenders. In addition to assisting the North Aurora Fire Department with fires, ambulance calls, and alarms, patrol officers also assist various agencies who seek assistance in and around the village.
The Patrol Division is responsible for documenting all activity during a shift and for completing criminal case reports when required. Patrol Officers are required to testify in court for criminal cases and traffic court when called upon.
