This recognition is driven by the OEMC’s commitment to innovation and flexibility in achieving its mission of supporting City services.
The end state is OEMC’s vision of “Integrated Operations, Safe and Secure Citizens.” The department will be guided toward this vision by its values of professionalism, accountability, integrity, communication, preparedness, and collaboration. These values will serve as guideposts for staff conduct as the OEMC works toward its vision by supporting City services and protecting both citizens and property in the City of Chicago.
