Dialogue between these three entities will continue as the safety of students, staff and residents is our highest priority. As a precaution, and to help ease concerns, the La Grange and Western Springs Police Departments will increase police visibility in and around the schools. We ask that everyone continue to remain vigilant as we work together to address safety concerns. If you see or hear anything suspicious, please contact 9-1-1. Attached is the LTHS Safety Statement

The week of January 8 marks the return to school for most elementary and high school students in La Grange. As traffic and pedestrian safety is a priority for the Village of La Grange, and to ensure a safe environment for school-aged children by increasing public awareness, the Village would like to provide motorists, residents and parents with the following safety reminders: • The speed limit around schools is 20 mph. Please drive carefully. • Please obey crossing guard commands. • Drivers must stop and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians when a person is walking with a green light or has entered a crosswalk before the traffic signal has changed. • Motorists must stop when a school bus is loading or unloading passengers. Motorists must remain stopped when the signal arm is extended and lights are flashing. • Parents are asked to exercise extra caution and allow themselves additional time for student drop-off and pick-up. • Cell phone usage is prohibited while driving on a roadway in a school speed zone. • The La Grange Police Department will be patrolling around school areas. The Village asks that all motorists drive carefully through La Grange.

***NEWS RELEASE*** The La Grange Police Department received a report of a suspicious person and package at St. Cletus Church, 600 W 55th Street, at approximately 3:15 p.m. on January 4, 2018. Responding officers learned that an unknown male white subject entered the church with a duffle bag leaving it under the altar and then departing the area. The male subject was approached by a custodian as he departed and offered only a peculiar reply when questioned about what he was doing. Upon observing the duffle bag, officers began evacuating the building and grounds and establishing a perimeter. The Cook County Department of Homeland Security and the Cook County Bomb Squad were also contacted and responded to the scene. The duffle bag and contents were examined and found to be non-life threatening and contain only clothing. This is an ongoing investigation and based on evidence found at the scene a suspect has been developed. The Investigations Division is attempting to locate the subject for questioning. Please report any suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1.

Happy New Year to everyone! Please have a safe and enjoyable evening as you ring in 2018. Please remember if you drink, please don’t drive! Public transportation is available at a reduced rate.

The La Grange, Western Springs and Countryside Police Departments have received several reports of burglaries from motor vehicles overnight. Over twenty reports of vehicles being unlawfully entered in the early hours of November 27, 2017 are currently being investigated. In each instance except one, the unknown offender(s) entered vehicles that were unlocked and parked on residential driveways. The LGPD continues to work closely with our regional partners to identify suspects. The Village would like to thank residents for their continued vigilance. Please continue to: • Keep all vehicle doors and windows closed and locked at all times. Close all windows and the sunroof and do not leave keys inside the vehicle. • Engage the vehicle’s alarm system if you have one. • Remove visible items of value (wallet, purse, electronics, etc.) from the vehicle. As always, if you see or hear any suspicious activity, call the police immediately by dialing 9-1-1.
