The Wilmette Police Department was established in 1886 by the Wilmette Village Board of Trustees. Today the Wilmette Police respond to about 18,000 calls each year.  Sworn personnel include the following: Chief of Police, 2 Deputy Chiefs, 1 Commander, 7 Sergeants, and 33 Police Officers.

In 1986 the Wilmette Police Department became the 3rd agency in Illinois and the 29th nationwide to earn accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, making it a leader in receiving this professional recognition. Since 1991 the Wilmette Police have required a four-year college degree at the entry level and today is in the upper 1% nationwide in Officer Education.

Full time assignments in the department exist in patrol, criminal and juvenile investigations, traffic, and School Resource Officer. Additionally, specialized assignments in patrol include evidence technician, regional emergency services team (S.W.A.T.), field training officer, firearms instructor, defensive tactics instructor, DUI specialist, traffic accident reconstruction, major crimes investigator and burglary investigator.
