The Police Department is divided into
two main divisions; Operations and Support Operations. Each division manages specialized units, including community outreach, traffic, bicycle, and beat patrol, K-9, school resource, investigations, communications, records, and others.

They are also members of the DuPage Major Crimes Task Force, DuPage Arson Task Force, DuPage County Swat Team, Illinois Weapons of Mass Destruction Response Team and the DuPage Metropolitan Enforcement Group (DuMeg). All of these efforts combined are for the benefit of increased efficiency and to provide enhanced services to the community.
Although each employee is assigned to a specific unit and division, their commitment to protect and serve the residents and community combine to form the extraordinary team of men and women who represent the Glendale Heights Police Department.
