Welcome Message from Director Anderson
On behalf of the Rosemont Public Safety Department, I would like to welcome you to our website and take this opportunity to introduce you to our organization.
Like many officers within this department, I grew up in Rosemont and take pride in serving the community I am from. I started my career in 1972 as a public safety dispatcher and began working as a public safety officer in 1974. During my career, I held ranks of; Detective, Sergeant, and Lieutenant, later retiring as Deputy Superintendent in 2007. I was brought back in 2020 as Director of Public Safety.
As a public safety department, we focus on providing services that reduce crime and improve the quality of life for those that live, work, and visit the Village of Rosemont. The highly skilled men and women of this department understand the complexities of modern policing and fire operations and continue to work tirelessly in protecting this community.

The Rosemont Public Safety Department
The Village of Rosemont has a distinct location, size, and composition located near O’Hare International Airport. As a result of this, a unique method for delivering police, fire, and emergency medical services was adopted back in 1975. The integration of these services has progressed over the years into the public safety model used today. This model necessitates that each sworn officer be fully trained and certified as a police officer, firefighter, and emergency medical technician. Public Safety Officers are assigned to either the Patrol Services Division or the Fire Services Division and will rotate assignments throughout their career. No matter the current assignment, all officers still maintain training and proficiency in all facets of the job.
It is the mission of the Rosemont Public Safety Department to work in partnership with the community to provide quality police, fire, and EMS services through innovation, leadership and trust.
The Rosemont Public Safety core values guide the operation of the Department and the conduct of its members. These are our fundamental beliefs from which our agency sets policy, delivers services and implements programs. Values set standards for our members in executing their public safety duties. These values guide our actions.
Life – We value the life of every person we interact with and embrace the differences we may have.
Integrity – We hold ourselves to the highest standard and value respect, fairness, honesty and impartiality.
Community – We take pride in the community we serve and work to continually strengthen the relationship we have through trust and transparency.
