Beat Team Leaders

Officer McGannon (Area 1) Officer Panizo (Area 2) Officer Evans (Area 3)



Officer Cacioppo (Area 4) Officer Tracy (Area 5)


In an effort to foster even better communication and relationships within our community, the department is expanding current problem solving efforts through the development of the Problem Solving Team and has initiated a Beat Team Leader (BTL) system in patrol.
The Problem Solving Team will review issues which cannot be successfully managed during the initial police officer visit. Examples of this include ongoing neighbor disputes, recurring criminal activity such as graffiti, parking issues, youth problems etc. The team will then collaborate and devise an appropriate strategy designed to mitigate the problem.
The Beat Team Leader system is designed to foster better communication between members of the department and the community. Five officers, one for each geographic beat, have been designated as the lead for their respective beat. This means that these officers will help to coordinate and be involved in all aspects of issues occurring in their beats. They may organize beat meetings throughout the year and will actively engage in working directly with their residents and business owners. To this end, these officers have been issued cell phones and will use the email address so they can maintain direct contact with their residents/business owners. Your BTL can be contacted directly by using the email address or the following numbers:
Area 1- Officer Matt McGannon                                      847-800-9865
Area 2- Officer Carlos Panizo                                         847-863-4967
Area 3- Officer Robert Evans                                         847-800-8382
Area 4- Officer Dave Cacioppo                                      847-863-4905
Area 5- Officer Steve Tracy                                           847-863-4894
Community Strategies Officer Julie Genualdi                  847-318-5233
Residents and business owners are encouraged to contact their BTL, by email or phone, when they have any questions or an issue which needs to be addressed by the department. That being said, if the issue is an emergency or crime in progress, residents and business owners should call 911 to request immediate police service. Responding officers will address the need for service and provide follow up to the BTL. It is important to note that the BTL may be on a day off or in training and, therefore, not in a position to respond immediately.
