Welcome to the Jerseyville Police Department Web Site.

I hope this website answers some of your questions, we will continually improve and update the contents of the site. If we can help you in any way or if you have other questions please call us at (618) 498-2131.

The Jerseyville Police Department is committed to serving this city with a community oriented approach. The City is a progressive community with a small town feel. I, along with the rest of the officers are proud to be part of the City of Jerseyville and the Jerseyville Police Department. I believe that Community and Policing go hand in hand and I welcome community partnership.

I was born and raised in Jerseyville and graduated from Jerseyville Community High School. I have obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration. One goal I set for myself in high school was to become a police officer for the Jerseyville Police Department. In June of 1995 that goal became a reality. In 2004 I reached a second goal which was to be the Chief of Police for my hometown community. The City of Jerseyville has been a great place to raise a family and I look forward to the future of the City as it grows and my work within the Police department. I would recommend Jerseyville to anyone looking for a place to live and raise a family. We will continue to work hard to keep you and your city safe.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please contact me.

Chief Brad Blackorby
