Schedule a tour of the Elgin Police Department

TOURS are suspended during COVID-19. This page will be updated when they resume.

The department offers tours to groups or organizations upon request. Tours are typically scheduled Monday through Thursday during the mornings or evening hours.

Throughout the tour, visitors can expect to meet a police officer, view a squad car, visit the range where officers practice their weaponry skills, see a juvenile holding cell and the observe the Emergency Communications Center. Although the Holding Facility is slated to be a part of the tour, its availability is dependent upon activity, as jailers may be busy processing detainees.

Tours typically last 45 minutes to one hour. While the department strives to serve all tours, they are limited to kindergarten aged children through adults.
