Village of Hartford is the “community of choice” for many residents and businesses. People are drawn to the Village because of our unique blend of urban and residential areas. The Village is a place where citizens freely enjoy picnics in the parks, stroll on trails and well maintained streets, and live in serene neighborhoods with peace of mind.
The Police Department is one of the departments in the Village helping to ensure safety in our community. The department prides itself on ensuring a safe community through caring, commitment and community partnerships. Our department is not your traditional police department. Officers proactively interact with the community to resolve issues and develop long term relationships with citizens in neighborhoods, schools, and businesses. Village officers look for opportunities to increase awareness by informing citizens when there appears to be a condition that could potentially be an opportunity for a crime.
Police officers have been seen throughout the Village visiting residents to inform them of an open garage door, or contacting individuals in parking lots that have left valuable items unattended in their vehicles. Village officers are always available to spend time with residents at neighborhood functions, such as Homeowner Association meetings, or at their homes. Officers frequently collaborate with businesses and work with youth in and outside the schools. Our department places a high priority on the safety of its citizens, preventing crime before it happens and making a difference in improving the quality of life in the Village.
