Chief Joshua Fourdyce's Welcome Message

Chief Fourdyce - Copy
On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the East Dundee Police Department, I extend a warm personal welcome to our webpage. The goal of our Village is to make East Dundee a place you cherish as your home, and the police department plays a pivotal role in realizing this vision.

The East Dundee Police Department is committed to delivering 24/7 patrol coverage. Our responsibilities include investigating criminal or suspicious activities, handling accident investigations, and enforcing traffic regulations. Additionally, we engage in various public service initiatives, including fingerprinting, safety presentations, and coordination with Village departments and outside agencies to enhance public safety. Since July 2019, we have proudly held accreditation from the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program (ILEAP), a distinction earned only by Illinois police departments that exemplify high standards and a focus on highest quality of service delivery. Notably, we achieved Reaccreditation status in our most recent assessment in 2023.

Throughout history, the core principle of law enforcement has been expressed in the timeless phrase "to serve and protect." I believe this principle remains as relevant today as ever. Our law enforcement strategy places a focal point on selfless service, with a primary goal of preventing, reducing, and solving crimes. We are committed to providing for the protection of life and property of all persons.

I hold a fundamental belief that the success of the police requires a commitment to community-oriented policing; successful law enforcement truly “takes a Village.” Recognizing the complexity of law enforcement issues, I acknowledge that the police department cannot solve them alone. True success requires a commitment from both the police and citizens to collaborate in addressing issues and concerns. This requires fostering an ongoing, authentic relationship between the community and the police. I will work diligently to ensure the East Dundee Police Department embraces these opportunities.  

I thank you for your support and encourage you to partner with us in our efforts. It is my privilege to serve the citizens and visitors of East Dundee as your Chief of Police. Together, let us strive for a safe and vibrant community. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at: JFourdyce@eastdundee.net.
