Message from the Chief

Steven R. Casstevens

 The Buffalo Grove Police Department is committed to its core function of ensuring safety to our village through professional service, steadfast law enforcement, and community partnership. We fully embrace the community policing concept and embrace its tenets in our daily work. 

Our officers perform with a high level of integrity, honesty, loyalty and professionalism, performing their duties while treating people with dignity and respect. Attention to customer service is always at the forefront while remembering our duty to maintain order and the public peace. 

With over 40 years of law enforcement experience, I am eager to continue and expand upon the successes of the Buffalo Grove Police Department and solidify it as one of the best agencies in the nation.  My door is open; I encourage our community members to reach out to me, or my staff at any time.
