South Area Patrol

Home > Departments > C.C.S.P.D. >Patrol Division >South Area Patrol

The South Area Patrol Division responds to calls for service in Southern Cook County, bordered by the Illinois/Indiana state line (east), Will County (south and west) and DuPage County and the Sheriff’s Police North Area Patrol (north). Based out of the Bridgeview and Markham Districts, officers assigned to the South Area Patrol respond to calls from the nine beats within the 375 square miles encompassed by that area.  Additionally, the South Area Patrol is responsible for assigning officers to patrol the Village of Ford Heights which dissolved its police department in early 2008. 

In 2009, officers working in the South Area Patrol Districts made approximately 4,000 arrests for crimes ranging from homicide to drug possession to driving on a revoked license.  Additionally, more than 41,000 tickets were written for various violations of the Illinois vehicle code.
