The East Moline Police Department command staff supervises the operations of the police department and manages one of the major city departments. The police department is divided into 2 sections, Operations and Services and each division is commanded by a Captain.
The East Moline Police Department has a variety of positions within the department that serve various functions. These positions are important components to effective and efficient police operations. Our department has had a long history of successful men and women who have served in various capacities.
It is important to honor those who have served in these various positions. First, we respect those who have come before us, sometimes laying the groundwork and framework for specific positions.
Second it has been typical, over the 105 plus years of the city police department, that specialty assignments have led to rising through the ranks of the organization. The experiences gained while assigned to these assignments provides invaluable knowledge, skill, and experience to lead the department into the future.
The police department has been reorganized many times over its rich tradition. Some specialty positions are not as old as others. Some positions have been redefined over the years and others have been affected by rank restructuring or reorganization.
