Check out these specials for our Veterans for this Veterans Day Wishing you peace, love and immense gratitude, Chaplain Terri <3

The trailer is in place at the Lemont Police Dept (next to CVS). Wooooo Hoooo!! Now let's fill it! I am in need of donations of winter clothing, shoes, accessories and kitchen/household items. Being the weather has not be cold yet I foresee struggling to fill the trailer, BUT I have faith that if you can rally up donations that we will come close. There are so many needs in homes right here and right now that you can meet. I hope you'll be able to sort through what you don't need and what someone else will be so excited to receive!! Trailer will remain at the Police Dept until Thurs Nov 2nd. Collection of items will end Friday Nov 3rd with a last minute chance for drive up drop off at Old Quarry Middle School from 3-3:30pm (pull up to east side door and students will unload your car). I also need help from 11:30-1 on Sat Nov 4th to load and move donations that remain (hopefully we will have so many things donated that we can make some fantastic ripples!) Thank you!!! ~ Chaplain Terri <3

School is back in session. A friendly reminder from the Lemont Police Department that school is back in session. Please use extra care while driving, especially in school zones and on our neighborhood streets. Be aware of pedestrians walking. The Lemont Police Department will be conducting aggressive traffic enforcement in the neighborhoods and around the schools. Watch your speed, stop completely for stop signs, yield to pedestrians crossing, and be aware around school buses. Safety is our goal! Have a safe day!

From our neighbors at Palos Park Police Dept. We want to make you aware of a scam that one of our clients encountered yesterday. It was quite sophisticated, coupled with a sense of urgency. A Comed facility manager received a phone call from someone saying they were from ComEd. They were informed that their account was past due, and that a ComEd crew was on their way to disconnect service. They were instructed to bring their account current that day, in order to avoid the disconnection to their facility. They left an 800 number to call back for payment instructions. When the 800 number was called, it started with a recording, nearly identical to the recording on the ComEd 800 number: “push 1 if you have a power emergency, and push 2 if you have a billing issue”. When connected, the rep on the phone identified themselves as “ComEd” and reiterated that their account was past due, and that they would need to send in a payment ($7000) immediately to ward off the crew sent over to disconnect service. At this point, the client contacted NIMEC, who helped manage this situation. NIMEC researched the clients’ accounts, and determined that $7000 would have covered 6 months of ComEd delivery charges, making the claim suspicious. NIMEC then contacted ComEd and learned that ComEd had received all payments, and that the account was current. Further, the 800 number given by the scammer (877-999-3580) was not the ComEd 800 number for commercial accounts. At this point, we instructed the client to not make any payments. We then sent the information on to ComEd to their Security department. Should you encounter any similar situations, please contact NIMEC first before making any payments.

Though the rain tried to ruin the event...it did not! The Car Show went on :-) Thank you to the Lemont Chamber of Commerce who brought the Emergency Vehicle Car Show to our downtown even with the battle with the weather! As you can see the turn out was electric and the crowd loved the chance to check out the lights and sirens! Major love and appreciation to all of our first responders who share their love of their job with young and older than young <3

School will be starting again this week in Lemont. That means school buses will be out and about transporting children. Please be aware of stopped buses on the roadway as well as the children that will be getting on and off. And as a reminder, Illinois law prohibits the use of cell phones in any capacity (hands-free device) while in a school speed zone. Let's all have a safe school year!

Sharing a very helpful post from our Palos Park Police Dept friends: Please be aware that skimmer scammers are always working! Thieves attach the battery devices on card readers. Skimmers are tiny devices that thieves attach to credit card readers to steal information. The devices are so tiny, you probably won't even notice them unless you're looking for them. The battery devices on card readers can record all your information and the thief will come and get their device and then they're able to make credit cards. The best way to protect yourself is try to only use card readers indoors. If you have to use them outside, shake the reader first. If a skimmer is attached to the outside, generally it will fall off. Also, regularly check your accounts to make sure there aren't any unauthorized charges.

Make our community safer...driver slower.
