Schiller Park Police Department News

I know it's a little late, but the final numbers are in. From Friday's Cop on a Rooftop event, the Schiller Park Police Department raised a total of $1,961.63 for the Illinois Special Olympics!!! A BIG thank you to Dunkin Donuts, 4121 N. Mannhiem, and the BP Gas Station for all of their assistance! We would also like to thank all of our volunteers for their time as well as every single person that donated. Every penny counts! If anyone has pictures from this event, feel free to share them in the comments.

Tomorrow is the big day!!! Come to to the Dunkin Donuts located at 4121 Mannheim Rd. (inside the BP Gas Station) to donate to the Illinois Special Olympics. We'll be out there from 5am-noon. You'll see some cops outside and some on the rooftop soliciting donations. Any donation gets you a FREE DONUT!!! Please leave some donuts for the cops though.

On May 18th, the Schiller Park Police Department will be participating in a "Cop on Top" event, designed to raise money for the Illinois Special Olympics Torch Run. Our officers will be stationed on top of the Dunkin Donuts located at 4121 Mannheim Road (at the BP Gas Station) in Schiller Park from 5:00 am to12:00pm. Officers will be accepting any donation which will be helpful toward funding this worthy cause. Please come on out, make a small donation, enjoy a free doughnut, and see some cops on top of a doughnut shop instead of inside of one.

SCAM ALERT: Among the many phone scams going around this time of year, SPPD was just made aware of a new one. A call will come through and the caller ID will identify the number as "Apple Inc.". The caller will tell you there is an issue with your Apple account and will ask you to sign onto your iCloud account on your computer. Do not do this. If you are concerned about a real issue with your account, hang up and call Apple from one of their many verified numbers such as 1-800-MY-APPLE (800-692-7753).

COOK COUNTY SHERIFF'S POLICE DEPARTMENT COMPLETES INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION CASE REVIEWS ARE CLEARED AND CLOSED NO FACT OR EVIDENCE SUGGEST NEED FOR CRIMINAL COMPLAINT Schiller Park - The Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department has completed its independent case review of two deaths that took place in Schiller Park. They were asked to investigate the 2000 death of Mary Kolodziej and the 2008 death of Lorraine Michalski. The independent investigation was initiated by Barbara Piltaver, who was the Village President of Schiller Park at the time of the request. Previous investigations by the Schiller Park Police Department and the Cook County Medical Examiner concluded that Ms. Kolodziej’s death was an apparent suicide. They also concluded that Ms. Michalski’s death was due to an accidental overdose. After a thorough investigation, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department concluded that no amendment to the original Cause and Manner of Death findings be made and that there was no evidence to support a criminal complaint in either of these deaths. The Sheriff's Department noted some investigative procedures that the Schiller Park Police Department could improve upon. Many of these suggestions, which pertained to procedures that were used in 2000 and 2008, had already been implemented prior to this investigation. The Schiller Park Police Department appreciates the observations and advice of the Sheriff's Department, and we thank them for the comprehensive review of these cases. The Cook County Sherriff's Department's complete report, as provided to the village, can be read at the following link: http://www.villageofschillerpark.com/DocumentCenter/View/1680

No legitimate United States Treasury or IRS official will demand that payments via Western Union, MoneyGram, bank wire transfers, or bank deposits be made into another person’s account for any debt to the IRS or Treasury. The TIGTA Office of Investigations (OI) is the lead federal agency combatting and investigating these scams. To date, TIGTA has indicted 88 persons, allegedly responsible for $64,223,354.70 in victim losses.
