Police Benefits

At the Gurnee Police Department, we prioritize the well-being of our officers by providing a comprehensive benefits package.

  • Health / Dental / Vision / Life Insurance plans
  • Retirement Savings Options (pension, 457, Roth IRA)
  • Approved GI Bill on-the-job training program; we support veterans and reservists
  • Tuition Reimbursement
  • Uniform Allowance
  • Annual Voluntary Fitness Bonus

We understand the importance of embracing individuality and supporting the well-being of our officers. Our progressive approach includes allowing visible tattoos within department policy parameters, excluding head, face, neck, and hand/finger tattoos. Additionally, facial hair, including mustaches, sideburns, goatees, and beards, is permitted within established policy guidelines.

We value the diverse backgrounds of our officers and recognize that personal circumstances vary. Therefore, we have no residency or living radius requirement, providing flexibility and allowing our officers to choose a living arrangement that suits their lifestyle.

Committed to the continuous development of our officers, we emphasize training and prioritize mental health and wellness. Our department is dedicated to providing resources and support to ensure the overall well-being of our officers. Join us at the Gurnee Police Department, where individuality is celebrated, and your well-being is a top priority.
