Wecome to Police Beat 310. I am Officer Robert Olkowski, the primary contact and Beat Coordinator of 310. I was hired by the Skokie Police Department in 1998 and have served as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Traffic Unit Officer, Range Officer, and NIPAS swat team member. I am currently assigned to the dayshift working from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Beat 310 is located on the northwest section of Skokie. It is one of the busier police beats made up of residences, commercial buildings, eateries, schools, major shopping centers and a hospital.
Its border lies just north of Old Orchard Road on the north (Village limits), Linder Avenue or Harms Road on the west (Village limits), Gross Point Road on the east and Golf Road on the south, with a portion extending south to Church Street along Skokie Boulevard. Schools within this beat include Niles North High School and Old Orchard Junior High. The beat is also home to numerous parks and trails of the Skokie Park District. Beat 310 is largely comprised of retail properties, especially along Gold Road and Skokie Boulevard. Old Orchard Mall, the Cook County Courthouse, and Skokie Hospital are just some of the major places of interest. Beat Officers work cooperatively to answer calls for service, conduct regular patrol, keep traffic moving and protect residents.
The Officers in Beat 310 strive to adhere to the mission of the Skokie Police Department and the community policing philosophy. If you are in need of immediate police assistance or need to report any criminal or suspicious activity, please call 911. If you have any questions or concerns involving Beat 310, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847/982-5302, x5053. Thank you.
