Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant  Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home. 

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant, and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

     “Valuable information will be presented about a wide range of prevention, treatment, law enforcement, and other strategies that communities can adopt in the fight against heroin,” said Paul Lauridsen, clinical director of Stepping Stones. “Sources will include the U.S. Office of National Drug Control 2014 Strategy, the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration strategic initiatives, and the State of Illinois Heroin Task Force legislation and Young Adult Heroin Task Force report.”

     Families, public officials, law enforcement, health care providers, educators, and the public are all encouraged to attend and learn more about the heroin and other drug overdose crisis and potential solutions.
