The mission of the Zion Police Department is to maintain peace and good order; protect life and property; prevent and investigate crime; and respond to community needs.

To touch our community in a practical, effective, and collaborative way, designed to augment the purely reactive, incident driven model of the past.

There are three components to our comprehensive program:
traditional; pro-active; non-enforcement outreach.

Together we can improve the quality of life, through community empowerment, partnership, and creative problem solving.


The Zion Police Department is comprised of 47 sworn officers, 9 dispatchers, 5 full-time and several part-time civilian employees, all under the direction of Chief Stephen Dumyahn.  

The Police Department is divided into 2 divisions, Operations & Administration.

The Operations Division consists of Patrol, Investigations and Community Services units. 

  • Patrol - Sworn officers assigned to Patrol respond to all calls for service, emergency and non-emergency, and are the most visible members of the department.

  • Investigations - Sworn officers assigned to Investigations as Detectives are responsible for conducting in-depth investigations into criminal complaints ranging from financial crimes, drug crimes to crimes of violence.  

  • Community Services – Civilian employees, assigned as Community Service Officers (CSOs), provide a wide variety of services to the community and the department.  Services such as traffic direction, motorist assistance, parking enforcement and animal complaints.

The department also has a Police Canine Unit, Ofc. Jon Meyers and his K-9 partner, Deutsch.  The Police Canine Unit was established in 2010 and has been fully funded by a private foundation since its inception.  Ofc. Meyers and Deutsch are assigned to the Patrol Division.

The Administration Division consists of the Emergency Dispatch (9-1-1) and the Records units.  Emergency dispatchers are available 24/7 and receive emergency and non-emergency calls for service.  Those calls are then dispatched to police or fire/rescue units.  The Records Unit processes all reports and citations and provides walk-in service for the department.
