South Barrington is an exceptional community. For this reason, the South Barrington Police Department is always seeking exceptional candidates interested in joining the ranks of our part-time officers.
The Village of South Barrington is home to The Arboretum of South Barrington Lifestyle Shopping Center, the 22-screen AMC-South Barrington Theater and Willow Creek Community Church, the third largest congregation in the United States. South Barrington is also home to Goebbert’s Farm and Garden Center. Each year Goebbert’s fall festival brings thousands of visitors to our community for what many consider an annual family tradition. We have much to keep us busy serving and protecting our community.
