Like last year the Roselle Police Association raised funds for breast cancer awareness. This year will be no different, this year we will be selling our one of a kind Pink Police Shoulder Patches, and we are adding a Pink Cancer Coin. This is a one of a kind limited edition coin, once we are sold out they will no longer be available. 100% of the proceeds from all our sales will be donated to AMITA Health Cancer Institute (a 501 C 3 Foundation) which will support patients at both Alexian Brothers and St. Alexius Cancer Institutes. The donation we make from the sale of the patches and coins will support things like wigs and breast prosthesis, holistic support programs, support groups, family support, massage therapy, fit club, community education and awareness programs, to name a few. We will be selling the patches and coins throughout the spring and summer events, or you can purchase them at our Records Window (open 8 to 5 Central M – F) at the Police Department (103 S.

You demonstrate to our community your professionalism and dedication every day! Thank you for all you do!

Beware of Ruse Burglaries and Scams Ruse burglaries or ploys often begin with the offenders creating an excuse to enter the victim’s home. After selecting a home by profiling it, the offenders often claim to be a utility worker, Village employee or a contractor. Often they will enter the home using the ruse of checking something, like your water pressure, leaky pipes or blown fuses. This is the time of year a homeowner will get approached and ask for assistance to locate a property line as the neighbor is installing a fence. While one offender keeps the homeowner occupied, one or more additional offenders enter the home undetected and commit a burglary. Often these burglaries are not noticed for days after they leave. Other scams that residents should be aware of are telephone scams where the caller identifies them self as a relative in need of money, or as the IRS threatening a lawsuit. In these types of scams, the caller often asks the victim to send cash or gift cards. Be aware that utilities and the IRS never call to request gift cards as payment, and they do not notify people over the phone that there is a problem with their account - that communication is done in writing through the mail. If you see something suspicious, call the Roselle Police Department and report these scams. More information will be forthcoming in the Roselle Reporter

Today some of the kids at Lake Park High School, both East and West Campus participated in the national walkout to pay respect to the victims of Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida. Lake Park High School shared a video with us that was made by some Lake Park Students, this video is very thoughtful and insightful, and you should take 7 minutes and watch it, they did a great job! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYs0kLFq9Kg&feature=youtu.be Whether you agree with what the kids did today or not, each of the students, those who decided to share in this event or not, all showed a great amount of respect towards each other, faculty and visitors who were allowed in the buildings. Parents of the students, you should be very proud of what your kids did today!

I didn’t think I would have to send more information out about what is happening at Lake Park High Schools today. This incident is unrelated to the events that occurred last Friday. This morning, our school resource officer learned of a student who made specific threats against Lake Park High School. Officers and school officials acted quickly to curtail any chance of danger to our kids. A 16-year-old Lake Park student was taken into custody and charged by the DuPage County State's Attorney with a felony and taken to the youth home for holding and processing. By looking at this case and how it was handled, I wanted to thank our school resource officers and Lake Park school staff who acted quickly and properly to this threat. This is a great example of the type of cooperation there is between the Roselle Police Department and Lake Park High School staff!

Well, we have had an unusual day here at our High Schools. Early this morning our School Resource Officers were made aware of a social media threat, they immediately began working with the Lake Park High School Personnel. As the morning progressed, our officers made a determination that the social media threat was not a credible threat and the students in the school were not in any danger. Soon afterwards, we had many parents who were worried about their children and showed up at the school to pick them up. We understand with what we have all seen in the media over the past week, and the opening of the High School in Parkland Florida today, we understand why many parents decided to pick up their children. We agree with the decision of Lake Park High School to cancel classes, as many of our officers were witness to the surge of parents arriving at the schools. As the day progressed we have found information which is being posted in the internet via various sources that are simply NOT TRUE! Many are drafted seemingly to resemble news articles or press releases. Again these are unfounded stories and simply not true! The Roselle Police Departments' highest priority is to provide safety and security to the students and facility at all of our schools within our community.
