The Investigations Unit
The Investigations Unit is comprised of a Commander, a Sergeant, four Detectives, two Tactical Officers, and a High School Liaison Officer.
Our Mobile Command Unit stores much of our evidence collecting equipment used at major incidents. The MCU is used to process crime scenes and to assist with accident investigations. Click on the image to the right to enlarge.
The Investigations Unit has a Crime Tips Hotline that offers anonymous reports of crime, gang problems, drug activity, etc.
Sex Offenders are required to register when moving into Rolling Meadows. The Investigation Unit processes Sex Offender registrations.
Recently, the Rolling Meadows Police Department has been investigating several residential burglaries in which the offenders entered during daytime hours when no one was home. The Arlington Heights and Palatine Police Departments are investigating similar crimes as well.
We strongly encourage our residents to help us by reporting all suspicious vehicles, persons, or circumstances. Since an officer can't be on every street in the City at once, we count on residents to be our additional eyes and ears. The vast majority of burglars who are arrested while committing their crimes are caught because observant neighbors called 9-1-1 immediately to report the suspicious activity. Too often, neighbors of burglary victims will tell the Police afterward that they saw someone unfamiliar at the victim's house during the crime.
We need residents to call 9-1-1 immediately if they see suspicious vehicles or people in their neighborhoods. Callers may opt to remain anonymous. Suspicious activity that needs to be reported immediately includes:
We need residents to partner with the Police Department by being aware and calling 9-1-1 with the best information they have on such vehicles (license plate, color, make, model, and type) and people (gender, race, height, build, color of hair, clothing, etc.). Delays in calling with this information will prevent a thorough and successful investigation by officers and may allow thieves and burglars to be successful in their crimes. Thank you in advance for your valuable assistance.
