About Lyons Police Department

The primary goal of the Lyons Police Department is fourfold:

  • To create and maintain close and ongoing communication with the citizens of this community to direct resources toward their areas of critical concern.
  • To increase accountability to the citizens and their elected representatives by closer integration of the planning and budgeting process with community input.
  • To maintain a closely-knit but flexible operational style which can respond to emergencies and unexpected issues.
  • To be a proponent of and to implement community-oriented policing throughout the department and the community.
