Chief’s Welcome Message

On behalf of the East Dundee Police Department, welcome to our homepage.  My name is Chief James Kruger and I have the honor to have been appointed your police chief in February of 2022.  The East Dundee Police Department is a full service, Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP), accredited municipal police department.

The Police Department is staffed by fifteen full and six part time sworn police officers.  Our department values are integrity, fairness, and respect.

As part of our pledge to the community, we have embraced the 10 Shared Principles.  This is a landmark collaborative effort between the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and the Illinois NAACP.  At their root, the principles focus on the sanctity of human life, and our pledge to Procedural Justice, both internally and externally, as a means to foster legitimacy in all of our interactions with the community.  For more information on the Principles, click the video link below.

I welcome your input as well as your compliments and concerns about any services you have received from the members of the East Dundee Police Department.  I look forward to meeting more of our residents and visitors in the future.  Thank you for your continued support of the department and the law enforcement community.

Chief James R. Kruger Jr., CPC
