Our Patrol Division consists of 21 sworn officers.

New Patrol CarThese officers use two unmarked police cars and seven marked police cars. These vehicles consist of Ford Interceptors. In August of 2004 the Lincoln Police transitioned into Black and White patrol cars. Most of our fleet looks like the black and white vehicle pictured, but we still have one of the full white cars. The black and white patrol car gives our cars that unique appearance only found on police cars.

Most of our vehicles are equipped with Video Cameras, RADAR, and Mobile Data Computers.

Our mobile data computers are connected to a statewide system implemented by the Illinois State Police called the Illinois Wireless Information Network(IWIN).
