With snow expected later tonight, the Traffic Safety Unit would like to remind motorists of these important winter driving tips: * Always wear a seat belt. It’s the law in Illinois. * Slow down. Slower speeds, slower acceleration, slower steering and slower braking all are required in winter driving conditions. * Drop it and drive. Put down the handheld devices – it, too, is the law in Illinois. * Don’t crowd the plow. A snowplow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them, but they may not see you. * Avoid using cruise control in snow and ice. * Watch out for black ice on roads that appear clear but can be treacherous. * Be especially careful approaching intersections, ramps, bridges and shady areas. All are prone to icing. * Carry a cell phone and a car charger in case of emergency. * Follow Scott’s Law. Slow down and move over for ALL disabled vehicles with hazard lights flashing. #APDPride JS419

Phony Police Scam Alert -- Please remember the Addison Police Department will never solicit funds over the telephone nor will it ever give your telephone number to a third-party fundraiser. Every day, police and firefighters risk their lives to make your community safer. To show your support, you may consider making a donation when they call. Before you do, the Federal Trade Commission urges you to consider these facts: • Simply having the words “police” or “firefighter” in an organization’s name does not mean police or firefighters are members of the group. Ask for identification. Chances are the caller is not an off-duty firefighter or cop, but a paid solicitor or even a crook pretending to be affiliated with firefighters or police. • Just because an organization claims it has local ties does not mean contributions will be used locally. Instead, ask to have information about the organization mailed to you and ask how much of your donation will go directly to the charity. • Donations to some groups may not be tax deductible. Ask if your contribution is tax deductible. JS419 #APDPride #ScamAlert
Residential Burglars Captured On Friday, February 2, 2018 at approximately 3:50 PM a concerned resident on the 900 block of Neva Avenue reported seeing a suspicious male in his front yard with “piggy bank”. The resident also provided a description of the vehicle the individual was seen entering, which was later stopped by Addison Police Officers. One of the males fled the car on foot. A short time later, the subject was located on Addison Road near the I-290 at which time he was placed into custody after a brief foot pursuit. Officers located a house on the 900 block of Neva Avenue that was broken into. The victim had a handgun, piggybank and United States Currency taken; these items along with two stolen loaded handguns out of the City of Chicago were located in the suspect’s vehicle. Detectives interviewed all four individuals and were able to charge Antonio Burgin of Linwood with Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Residential Burglary and Deray Antoine Calcote of Chicago with Residential Burglary. Thanks to the resident who initially called when he saw the suspicious person and to the numerous other residents who called when they saw the suspect running through the yards. The Addison Police Department is aware we cannot do our job without your help. SG341 #APDPride #SeeSomethingSaySomething #Can’tRunFromUs
