Government in Our Community

government

Village president and a board of six elected-at-large trustees govern the Village of Olympia Fields. The Village Administrator and staff handle the day-to-day management of village operations and services.

Thanks to the efforts of the Olympia Fields Police Department, the community enjoys one of the lowest crime rates in the entire Chicago metropolitan area. The police department currently has 19 sworn officers and two full-time clerical staff. Operations include an enhanced 911-telephone system working in conjunction with a shared Computer Aided Dispatch Center located in Matteson. The OFPD offers residents a number of other community outreach programs & services.

Several years ago, the village established a partnership with the Matteson Fire Department to provide Olympia Fields residents and businesses with fire protection and fast, expert response to emergency medical and rescue calls. The Matteson Fire Department operates out of two stations; both staffed 24 hours a day by firefighter/ paramedics. Many of the department’s full- and part-time firefighters are trained and certified in advanced life support, CPR, underwater rescue and recovery, fire/arson investigation, hazardous materials response, public fire education and much more.
