Chief Rick Pyle, Director of Public Safety
The Highland Park Department of Public Safety is a unique blending of fire, police, and emergency medical services. An officer with the Highland Park Department of Public Safety is assigned to one of three 24-hour shifts, either "A," "B," or "C" shift. Public Safety Officers are cross-trained in police, fire and EMS, and engage in each of these disciplines every shift. It is a demanding profession that requires highly qualified and motivated officers to fulfill the requirements of the profession. The Operations staff is supported by an equally motivated Administrative staff. At the Highland Park Department of Public Safety we work hard each day to deliver the highest levels of service.
