New Chief Page Looking to Continue Improving Mt. Vernon Police Dept. Community Relations

MT. VERNON — The Mt. Vernon Police Department has a new man in charge, but new chief Trent Page says residents should not expect much change in how the department is run.

Page says he understands that many interactions his department has with the public are not positive, and he is thankful for local businesses that help his department provide positive interactions with the public.

Page has an open door policy and wants to hear from city residents. To reach out to the police department, you can call 242-2131.

You can hear the full interview with Chief Page Sunday morning at 11 a.m. on the Southern Illinois Insider on AM 940, 96.5 FM, and also on 94.1 FM, WMIX.
