The Antioch Police Department participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run benefiting Special Olympics IL. The Torch Run includes an annual intrastate relay conducted by officers representing every branch of law enforcement across the state. Approximately 3,000 officers will carry the Flame of Hope nearly 1,500 miles from June 10-15 running through Illinois communities via 23 different legs to it's final destination, which is the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics IL Summer Games on June 15th in Normal. Antioch Officers and their families started the journey down Rt 83 and passed the flame to Lake Villa officers at Rt 83/Beach Grove Rd. In conjunction with the Cops On Rooftop and Polar Plunge fundraising events, the Torch Run also increases awareness for the athletes who participate in the Special Olympics.

Our hearts go out to the Milwaukee Police Department, the friends and family of Officer Charles Irvine Jr., who tragically lost his life yesterday. Rest easy, we’ll take the watch from here.

The Antioch Police Department would like to advise and share information about fraudulent activity operating under “Illinois Gas & Electric" solicitors. Representatives from ComEd always carry proper identification and NEVER ask customers for cash or personal financial information. Customers can avoid being scammed by taking a few precautions: ▪ Never provide social security or personal information to anyone initiating contact with you claiming to be a ComEd representative or requesting you to send money to another person or entity other than ComEd. ▪ Always ask to see a company photo ID before allowing any utility worker into your home or business. ▪ When in doubt, check it out. Be skeptical of individuals wearing clothing with old or defaced company logos. If you have any doubts, ask to see a company photo ID and if you are still not sure, call our customer service to verify. ▪ Never make payment for services to anyone coming to the door or someone who is trying to pressure you on the phone. Anyone who believes he or she has been a target of a phone scam is urged to contact the Illinois Attorney General’s office toll free at 1-800-386-5438 (TTY 1-800-964-3013) or visit the Illinois Attorney General’s web site at www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov and click on the link “Protecting Consumers.” Customers can reach ComEd at 1-800-EDISON1 to inquire about details on their account or report a possible scam.

Congratulations! Our FIRST Citizen’s Police Academy graduates! 🎓We are so happy that you've joined us these last 10 weeks to learn all about Law Enforcement and the Community. We had many laughs, first time experiences and some serious conversations, but most importantly we gained so many new friends! Chief Huffman was presented with an appreciation plaque for our department’s dedication which will be displayed in our upstairs lobby. Stay tuned for our next Citizens Police Academy session, and join the fun!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY The Antioch Police Department would like to express our gratitude and respect for all the veterans out there and all the sacrifices made for our freedom. On Memorial Day, we honor those we have lost. Those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Our freedom is possible because of the sacrifices these soldiers and their families had to endure. For this, we will always be grateful. So as many of us enjoy time with family and friends this weekend, please remember the true meaning of Memorial Day. We hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

This past Wednesday night participants of the Antioch Citizen’s Police Academy learned about traffic stops and our Explorer’s Program. Each participant was then given the opportunity to perform their own mock traffic stop.

This past Wednesday, participants of our Citizens Police Academy received training with F.A.T.S - FireArms Training Simulator. F.A.T.S. is an entirely interactive training simulator that uses a computer program, large projection screen and very realistic firearms that are loaded with computer chips instead of ammunition. The F.A.T.S. software was designed to simulate police calls and stops and the firearms are interactive with the training simulator. Our instructor personalizes each scenario for the individual shooter and can increase or decrease the intensity of the situation to match the participants ability level even as the situation progresses. In these scenarios, Sergeant Garcia and Citizen Police Academy participants,are training to utilize verbal skills to de-escalate situations.

Once again, the amount of people willing to donate to this cause and the amount that was raised is truly amazing. Thanks to all! We will send an update as we anticipate additional donations ( we are close to our goal of raising one penny more than our 2017 total of $5,631.39) A HUGE thank you goes out to Dunkin' Donuts, without their cooperation this event would not have been possible. Thank you to our wonderful community and patron Don who donated children’s bikes to be raffled. We have an awesome APD community. Stay tuned for our donation total Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
