This Saturday! Come by and have a hot chocolate on us.

The Blue Island Police Department is asking for your help locating a missing woman with dementia. Earlier today, the Blue Island Police Department received a call of a missing 73 year old woman named Nancy Merritt who suffers from the early onset of dementia. Since we first received the call, we learned that she was last seen in the First Midwest Bank at 121st and Western at approximately 1030 hours. She was observed on camera at that location walking away from the bank heading northbound on Western Ave. If you see any elderly person that fits Mrs. Merritt's description or you know her whereabouts please call 911.

One week from this Saturday, the morning of the Light Parade, come and donate to Angel's Touch.

On November 13th at approximately 9:00 a.m., our Blue island 911 Dispatch Center moved over to the Cook County Emergency 911 Center and the Orland Fire Protection District for dispatch services for both police and fire service. The transfer of the 911 emergency lines was successfully accomplished with no problems encountered. We are continuing the switch-over of the non-emergency lines but do not anticipate any significant disruptions. We would like to thank our dedicated dispatchers, who all stayed with us until the transfer was complete. Without their loyalty and commitment, this transition would have been much more challenging. Thank you all for your many years of service!
