Police Department

The Ottawa Hills Police Department is led by Police Chief and Village Administrator John Wenzlick. Chief Wenzlick partners with Deputy Police Chief Gregg Estok to lead a team of 12 certified full-time police officers.

The police department is staffed 24 hours per day, and has a full-time detective, a civilian police administrative assistant, and a school crossing guard. The Village Police Department is dedicated to community-based policing. We are equipped and trained to handle a wide range of law enforcement issues that may arise in the Village. We pride ourselves in providing a strong sense of security to our residents. Fair and consistent law enforcement is a key characteristic of our department.

Our officers have a strong relationship with the community. Due to the size of the Village, we are able to offer a high level of service beyond basic law enforcement. Ottawa Hills officers are very visible in the schools, attend community wide events throughout the year, provide vacation house watch services, teach Safety Village and DARE, and sponsor several events for Village residents.
