About Us

Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Normal Police Department website. Our department consists of 81 sworn officers and 26 full and part time civilian staff members. We are a progressive department committed to working in partnership with the community to promote safety and enhance the quality of life for our citizens. We are extremely proud of the fact that we are nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. This recognition means the department’s policies, procedures and operations meet national standards for the best practices for progressive law enforcement agencies.

We embrace the Community Policing philosophy and believe that good communication between the public and the department is essential. The department encourages community feedback so please feel free to contact me any time with questions or comments you may have.

We hope you enjoy your visit.

Rick Bleichner
Chief of Police
