Meet Officer Henke 

Dear Near West Neighbors,

My name is Officer Robert Henke and  I am currently the Resident Police Officer of 110 N. Union Street.  For those of you that don’t know, the Resident Officer Program was initially designed to provide a safer more quiet neighborhood to live in while reducing crime and in turn, improving the quality of life for our residents.  As a lifelong resident of Elgin,  I have a vested interest in the City of Elgin and  I am excited to be part of your neighborhood.  In addition to being a life-long resident of Elgin, I am a second-generation police officer at the Elgin Police Department.  I have received specialized training that will aid me in this position as your resident officer.  I am a certified Juvenile Officer,  Elderly Service Officer and I am a certified Crisis Intervention Officer.   During my career, I also served in the Community Relations Division and was a D.A.R.E. Officer. 

I look forward to working with each of you in a continued effort to build upon the already strong community relationship between the Elgin Police Department and our valued residents.

Your Resident Officer,

Ofc. Robert “Bob” Henke #254
