Public safety is ensured through the auspices of the Chicago Heights Police Department. The department is staffed with 78 sworn personnel, plus 28 civilian personnel. The police department places strong emphasis on juvenile crime prevention and effective narcotics investigations. Also active in community relations, the police department strives to educate children on the dangers of drugs through Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.).

Also an integral part of the community, the Chicago Heights Fire Department is composed of 66 career full-time and 25 paid-on-call firefighters operating out of five stations. Well over half of the career firefighters are licensed paramedics. Adding to this are paramedics and EMTs within the paid-on-call division, plus five Advanced Life Support Ambulances. The Fire Department also serves the Olympia Gardens community through a contract with the Olympia Gardens Fire Protection District.
