We strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism and integrity. Our agency employs up to 81 full-time, sworn police officers and 20 civilian/non-sworn employees.

In addition to dozens of offices and meeting rooms, the new police station boasts a secured, climate-controlled parking garage, a weight/exercise room, and its own indoor firing range. The Illinois State Police Crime Scene Investigations Unit also has an office in the building.

Our agency handled handles approximately 60,000 calls for service annually. We serve over 43,000 residents in an area of roughly 16.6 square miles.

Core Values




The law enforcement agencies of Moline and Rock Island County are once again eligible to share funding through an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) award. JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system. The total fiscal year 2022 award is $17,917, and the individual allocations are $16,125.30 to Moline and $1,791.70 to Rock Island County. This is an annual grant award, and there are no matching funds required. The Moline Police Department plans to utilize its share to purchase equipment for their less lethal deployment project. The proposed Memorandum of Understanding among the two agencies will be on the Committee of the Whole agenda on July 26, 2022 and the Council agenda on July 26, 2022. If you would like to comment on Moline’s portion of the grant, please call 309-524-2230 or email soleary@moline.il.us.
