About Us


The Highland Park Department of Public Safety is a unique organization, one that blends law enforcement, fire fighting, and emergency medical services (EMS) into one department. Each officer is certified and trained in all three disciplines, and officers assigned to the Operations Division work one of three, 24-hour shifts. Scheduling for the Operations Division mirrors a traditional firefighter schedule: 24 hours on, and 48 hours off. The roles of police, fire, and EMS are carried out on a daily basis by each officer assigned to the Operations Division.
