Northwest District

Lt. Dave Shaffer
Northwest District Commander
217/403-7030


The Northwest District has undergone a positive transition over the last few years. This improvement is directly related to the Garden Hills Neighborhood Group and its intimate involvement with City personnel and most importantly the police department.

In 2009 officers and citizens continued their focus with neighborhood involvement and problem policing. This steadfast approach has made a noticeable reduction of crime and nuisance violation.

Garden Hills School recently held a ground-breaking for the new school and construction is underway. Sawgrass and Boulder Ridge have been a positive addition to the District, with North Prospect Avenue businesses being an added convenience.

The Northwest District Officers and all City personnel look forward to working with the citizens of Champaign in identifying issues and finding solutions to those issues in the year ahead.
