"The Grandparent Scam" The scam begins with something most grandparents don't get enough of -- a phone call from a grandchild -- or so the caller says. But it almost always ends with a desperate plea for money. They call senior citizens in the U.S., impersonating a grandchild in distress, begging for cash. This is how a typical call would go, 'Hey, how are you, hi grandma, hi grandpa... I'm in a little bit of trouble right now. If I tell you, just keep it between us, I'm on vacation, but I got into trouble, and I was arrested and need you to send me money/gift cards wired or an account opened immediately. It's estimated senior citizens are robbed of roughly $3 billion a year in financial scams. Phone scams are often run outside the con artists usually buy their victims' personal information online, which can include their age and income. They target people over the age of 65, mainly, because they're more gullible and they are at home. They're more accessible. They get emotionally involved, then will do anything asked of them. It’s not just seniors, there are doctors and lawyers that fall for this. It doesn't matter what your educational level is because it triggers something emotional, it causes you to act. You are blinded by emotion and don't think rationally when this happens. It's hard to tell how many people have been scammed like this, because there is no national database to track the grandparent scam and many grandparents are so embarrassed to report it. It's also very hard to catch these criminals, especially when they're operating outside the U.S. Also, their tactics can be highly sophisticated, such as disguising their phone numbers with a familiar number. To file a complaint with The Federal Trade Commission, go to www.ftc.gov where you can fill out an online complaint form. You can also call the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 to report a complaint.

Holiday Safety Tips The holiday season is upon us, and many pet parents plan to include their furry companions in the festivities. As you gear up for the holidays, it is important to try to keep your pet's eating and exercise habits as close to their normal routine as possible. Also, please be sure to steer pets clear of the following unhealthy treats, toxic plants and dangerous decorations. *Be Careful with Seasonal Plants and Decorations* * *Oh, Christmas Tree:*Securely anchor your Christmas tree so it doesn't tip and fall, causing possible injury to your pet. This will also prevent the tree water—which may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset—from spilling. Stagnant tree water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and your pet could end up with nausea or diarrhea should he imbibe. * *Avoid Mistletoe & Holly:*Holly, when ingested, can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal upset and cardiovascular problems. And many varieties of lilies can cause kidney failure in cats if ingested. Opt for just-as-jolly artificial plants made from silk or plastic, or choose a pet-safe bouquet. * *Tinsel-less Town:*Kitties love this sparkly, light-catching "toy" that's easy to bat around and carry in their mouths. But a nibble can lead to a swallow, which can lead to an obstructed digestive tract, severe vomiting, dehydration and possible surgery. It's best to brighten your boughs with something other than tinsel. * *That Holiday Glow:*Don't leave lighted candles unattended. Pets may burn themselves or cause a fire if they knock candles over. Be sure to use appropriate candle holders, placed on a stable surface. And if you leave the room, put the candle out! * *Wired Up:*Keep wires, batteries and glass or plastic ornaments out of paws' reach. A wire can deliver a potentially lethal electrical shock and a punctured battery can cause burns to the mouth and esophagus, while shards of breakable ornaments can damage your pet's mouth and digestive tract.

Message from the Chief I'm asking all Orland Hills residents to help us prevent crime and not become a "Volunteer Victim". What is a volunteer victim? It's an individual that leaves their home, car, or garage open. This makes it easy for those who want to take advantage of us. Most crimes are crimes of opportunity. Please help us protect you. Replace burnt out bulbs on the exterior of your home. Trim back bushes and trees that block windows and doors. Most importantly, let's report suspicious activity. Working together, we can all keep Orland Hills one of the safest communities in Illinois.

School will be starting again this week in many towns throughout Illinois. 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!

This week many children will go back to school. Since the weather is still warm, most will walk to school. Please help us keep the kids safe! Pay attention while driving, especially in school zones. Most of us know talking on a cell phone while driving is against the law. Did you know that any activity that takes your attention away from the road is called "distracted driving" and is illegal? Please put your makeup on at home, eat your meals at the kitchen table, and focus on driving safely. The life you save may be your own!

Did you know that most crimes are "crimes of opportunity"? Leaving your car unlocked, garage door or home door open, creates an easy opportunity for criminals to steal your property or worse! Help us keep you safe! Always lock your car and home. Keep valuables in your car out of sight. Lock your garage, access doors, and sheds. Trim back bushes and trees near windows. Add lighting around your property and consider an alarm. Working together we make Orland Hills the perfect place to live, visit, and work. Feel free to call us and ask for a home safety inspection!

The Fourth of July is a great day to celebrate our country. Many of us will celebrate with family and friends at parties and barbecues . Of course, it wouldn't be the Fourth of July without fireworks. The sounds and sights of the fireworks are enjoyed by everyone. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured by fireworks. Many fires are also the result of an errant firework. Please enjoy the holiday, but leave the fireworks to the professionals. Have a great holiday!
