Welcome From Chief Rataj

As Chief of Police, please allow me to welcome you to the Hinsdale Police Department’s website! The Hinsdale Police Department is committed to working with its residents, businesses, and institutions of our great town in an effort to form effective police-community partnerships.

Like any police agency in our state the Hinsdale Police Department is often the most visible form of government within our community.  Often times contact with our department comes on the heels of someone needing services, having a bad day or simply by means of our officers enforcing laws with a focus on community safety and education.  We often meet great people on their worst day and at times must enforce the laws that our voted members have enacted and uphold our constitution.  We understand that everyone makes mistakes and we do not hold those mistakes against anyone.

The Hinsdale Police Department is constantly striving to improve itself to better serve the community.  Our officers are highly trained and dedicated to the mission of public safety and more importantly service to our community.  For a small community our department is extremely busy and we handle all the same types and severity of calls you will see in larger metropolitan areas.  This type of volume requires our officers to be crossed trained in many areas as well as have specialties that we can utilize when needed.

If you are a resident of Hinsdale or just passing through please know we are here to serve you.  We cannot be everywhere and we need your help to keep us informed.  If you have any information that will help us better serve your, make the community safer or help solve a crime please do not hesitate to call us.  As your chief I am also here to listen and I welcome your input.
