The Village of Lisle Embraced Diversity and Denounces Racism and Violence

The Village of Lisle is an excellent community which embraces and celebrates its diversity. Hateful criminal acts and racism are an affront to these values and will not be tolerated. The men and women of the Lisle Police Department have sworn an oath to protect all residents of Lisle, the State of Illinois, and citizens of the United States of America. Accordingly, the Village of Lisle and the Lisle Police Department stand united against any and all acts of violence and racism and reject discrimination towards any person under any circumstance.

Recent inquiries have been received from residents regarding current police practices. The list of common questions originate from the Black Lives Matter and 8Can’tWait movements, and are based upon the recommendations from the organizations on what would help improve police and community relations. In the interest of education, openness, and transparency, we share the questions that were submitted and the answers that were provided in response.

The Village of Lisle Police Department utilizes policies from Lexipol, which is a resource that provides constitutionally sound policies based on progressive best practices and the latest statutory and case law. It also provides tools that allow our agency to customize policies to the unique needs of our community. Every Lexipol subscribing agency is also regularly provided with ongoing updates to help them keep their policies current.

Lexipol is sensitive to and frequently encourages input from a variety of sources, including members of the public and reform groups, and continues to develop policies and trainings based on the most current legal standards and best practices. The primary mission of Lexipol’s policy guidance and training has always been, and always will be, the preservation of life. This aligns with the basic priority of the Lisle Police Department, which is Life Safety.
