Stay safe from scams - ask for ID!

Post Date:01/09/2018 12:06 PM

Due to incidents of theft that have occurred throughout the suburbs, the Police Department wants residents to be aware of some things to look for if someone shows up at your door claiming to be a Public Works employee or other Village representative. Our employees:

* Drive vehicles that are easily identifiable as Village vehicles
* Wear clothing that displays the Village logo
* Will present an official Village identification card upon request (see below for example)
* Will have no problem having a resident observe their work

If someone comes to your home and does not meet this criteria, DO NOT LET THEM IN! Call 911 immediately and we will have an officer respond to verify their identity. Please help us spread the word and share this information with your elderly family members who may not have access to our website or social media channels.

Be aware, and stay safe!
