Welcome to the Chatham Police Department. Chatham Illinois is located next to the southwest border of Springfield, Illinois. Our population has increased rapidly in recent years to just under 13,000. Chatham offers a small town feel with all the convinces of a large town. While the population has increased, the Chatham Police Department has been able to keep the crime rate low.

The Chatham Police Department is made up of 15 full time officers including the Chief, a Deputy Chief, 3 Sergeants, and 10 Patrol Officers. The Police Department also operates a 24 hour, 7 day a week dispatch center that handles dispatching of police and other public utilities.

The Chatham Police Department is dedicated to working in partnership with the community to promote safety and enhance the quality of the lives of its citizens.

The Chatham Police Department would like to encourage the community to contact the department if there are any questions, concerns or requests.  It is only with the community's support that the Chatham Police Department can effectively do its job.
