Chief’s Message

A Message from Chief Hitchcock Chief Hitchcock

On behalf of the men and women of the Moline Police Department, welcome to our website and thank you for taking time to learn about our organization. We are honored to be able to serve the community of Moline. We are working hard to keep the website updated and informative so that you have a good idea of the services we provide.

We designed this website to give you an overview of the divisions within the department and some information on programs we are involved in. There is information on how to report crimes or violations and links to several area agencies we partner with in order to provide the best quality of life for our residents.

The department is committed to a Community Oriented Policing philosophy and we are dedicated to providing the best service possible to our community. We believe community problems are best addressed by working hand in hand with the citizens and we are dedicated to strengthening that partnership.

We at the police department, along with city hall and the mayor, are committed to providing the highest level of public safety possible and making Moline a great place to work, live, and play. Our goal is to exceed community expectations by always taking the extra step and going above and beyond what is expected.

If you have any comments or concerns, please let us know.


Chief John Hitchcock
