Once again congratulations to Officer Maria Reyes on being named Addison Outstanding Officer of the Quarter for the third quarter of 2017. Officer Reyes is a 12-year veteran with the Addison Police Department who continually goes above and beyond her job responsibilities to serve the citizens of Addison and others.

Last night at the Village of Addison Board meeting Emily Revas and Isabella Landis were recognized as the winners of the Red Ribbon Contest. The Red Ribbon Campaign is a national initiative which serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to participate in drug prevention activities. Fifth graders in Addison were asked to decorate the exterior of their home with a red ribbon to show their support for anti-drug awareness. Both girls did a phenomenal job and we thank them for taking an active role in their community. MS416

It’s almost that time again to turn your clocks back. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 5, which means you will be “falling back” — turning your clocks back one hour. It’s a practice that is meant to reduce electricity usage by extending morning daylight hours. And don’t forget when you turn your clocks back, please test and replace your smoke detector batteries.
A Message from the Traffic Safety Unit – The results are in from the 2017-2018 Halloween Grant Enforcement.

A total of 14 vehicles were stopped with 15 citations written and arrests made during that time. Officers assigned to the enforcement period made the following contacts: • 1 Citation for Failure to Wear Seat Belt • 2 Citations for Operating Uninsured Motor Vehicle • 5 Citations for Speeding • 1 Citation for Unlawful Use of Electronic Communication Device • 2 Driver’s License Offenses • 4 Citations for Equipment/Moving Violations This grant period was an excellent example of Patrol, Traffic, Communications and Records working together for the good of the Village.
Could she become a future Addison Police Department recruit?
Meet Officer Reyes … again! It comes as no surprise to us that Officer Marie Reyes has been recognized this time by a citizen who works in Addison. Here is her story, as was related to us by the father of young girl. This young girl wanted to be a police officer for Halloween, but was conflicted because she thought that police officers were only men. As he was driving in Addison with his young daughter who was dressed up for Halloween, they saw Officer Reyes and told her their story. Officer Reyes had them pull over so she could meet the young girl. As the family was pulling out of the parking lot, the young girl exclaimed, “This is the best Halloween ever.” Officer Reyes is the type of officer we strive for all our officers to be. The Addison Police Department is here to protect and serve the community, and that service comes in many forms.
We’re getting hairy these days -- The Addison Police Department is joining the Village of Addison’s very first No-Shave November. Director Hayden has waived the Police Department’s grooming policy for the month to allow officers to grow facial hair in support of this campaign. Officers who want to participate will be asked to make a donation. There will be contests for Best and Worst Beard, Best and Worst Goatee and Best and Worst Mustache. Funds raised during this event will go toward No-Shave November, which has selected three charities for this year’s campaign -- Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. If you would like to help support this great cause, visit http://no-shave.org/team/villageofaddison Stay tuned to watch us grow!

Happy Halloween! Trick or Treat hours in the Village of Addison are from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. • Put cell phones down and keep your head up. Walk, don’t run, when crossing the street. • No candy should be eaten until it has been inspected by an adult to check for any signs of tampering. • Discard any unwrapped items. • Carry a flashlight while trick or treating. • Trick or treat in groups, whenever possible, accompanied by one or more adults. • Instruct your children to never enter any home or approach an occupied vehicle.
