Chief's Welcome

Chief Stephen Dickson

Welcome to the Rockton Police Department web pages. We hope you find our site useful in locating information about our department and the community.
The Rockton Police Department takes pride in our mission: "providing a safe community". This is an exciting time in Rockton with the growth in both residential and retail. As the community expands, services have to keep pace. We have a plan in place for controlled growth so that police services are not left behind.
We offer a variety of programs like Neighborhood Watch, DARE, vacation house checks, and a Citizens Police Academy. We offer assistance that larger communities cannot as part of our "community policing" philosophy. Each neighborhood has two officers assigned as "beat officers". These officers are responsible to those residents 24/7 for problems and concerns and they have authority to solve problems and resolve quality of life concerns.
I invite you to call or stop by our station. I am always willing to discuss your special concerns or issues. My phone number is (815) 624-8881, my email address is:
Thank you for your interest in the Rockton Police Department, we look forward to serving you!
