Chief outlines DeKalb policing vision
DeKALB – By the end of 2014, DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery hopes to have several new programs in place, as well as four more police officers, a K-9 unit and a mass-arrest vehicle.
Lowery outlined his goals in his “20/20: Vision for the Future” report, which details 20 different initiatives the DeKalb Police Department will undertake in the next 20 months.
The department has seen an increase in calls for service. Lowery is expecting the department to have handled more than 42,000 calls by the end of 2012, a 6 percent increase from last year. By comparison to other Illinois towns with large public universities in it, DeKalb has the highest call-to-officer ratio, Lowery said.
