SouthPark Mall Substation
The Moline Police Department opened its SouthPark Mall community oriented policing (COP) office in 1996, with three officers assigned on a full-time basis. A federal grant enabled implementation of the new police substation, and joint funding from the mall owners and city are responsible for its continued success.

In addition to providing law enforcement services, the officers routinely conduct crime prevention initiatives and participate in various events held at the mall. They are familiar faces to the merchants, customers, and mall walkers and a deterrent to criminals.

Throughout the year, they participate in a number of community and police programs, including bicycle rodeos, Kids and Cops Holiday Shop, and the Halloween program held at the mall.

Award Incentive Program
Through their Award Incentive Program, each month, one merchant or employee is selected to receive a $25 Simon gift card and certificate of appreciation from the officers for providing the most productive tip that leads to a felony arrest. Funds for the gift card are provided by the mall. The program continues to be successful in promoting more participation from the mall employees.

The COP officers also conduct all follow-up investigations of crimes that occur on mall property, including obtaining charges and getting warrants signed.
