In addition to parking and house checks, the portal also allows you to make a report to the Department of Public Works should you see anything out of order (street lights, traffic signals, etc.) in the Village.Request non-emergency services HERE.

If you see something, say something:

The police department would like to remind citizens that they are one of our best tools for solving crimes. Many times officers speak to citizens who say they saw suspicious activity, but did not call right away because they did not want to inconvenience the officers. Our officers will never be inconvenienced to assist the citizens of this community and would like to remind everyone, “if you see something, say something.” If you do not feel comfortable calling 911 or do not feel that it is an “emergency”, feel free to call the police department’s non-emergency dispatch number (708) 385-5131.
