Police Chief Shane Woody
I’m honored to present to you, the citizens of Belvidere, this revised and information filled web site. As you review this information and consider the accomplishments of the Belvidere Police Department, I hope you will also consider the community’s involvement in those accomplishments also.
As the understanding of community policing increases, both in the department and the community, we have developed stronger citizen—police partnerships. We know we cannot reduce crime without cooperation between officers and the citizens we serve.
We publish our annual reports on this web site. I hope you will take the time to read this report and find out more about the Belvidere Police Department. We are working hard, not only to reduce crime, but to help you feel safe within the community. Of course, we always welcome comments and suggestions from you, our partners in the fight against crime.
