Tactical Response Unit (TRU)

In late 2007 the Police Department merged its Tactical Response Unit (TRU) with the Kane County Sheriff's Office Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team. The TRU had been operating since 1994; it successfully handled such high-profile cases as the Halloween shooting of trick-or-treaters in 2003, as well as high-risk incidents such as barricaded subjects, hostages, and high-risk search warrants.

Apartment Complex Officer Program/Coordinator

The Apartment Complex Officer Program has been developed over the years as a cooperative effort between the St. Charles Police Department and several community apartment complexes. Participating complexes sign a contract with the Department that outlines how the two parties will coordinate enforcement efforts of unwanted behavior within the complex, dealing especially with conflict that takes place after normal business hours.
