Wauconda Police Department News

Special Census to Begin in Liberty Lakes Area this Thursday The Schools, Village, and other entities receive funding from the State and Federal Government based on the number of residents in the Village. The Village staff have looked at recent data and think that the number of residents in the Liberty Lakes area is undercounted due to population growth since the data for the 2010 Census was completed. The Village has initiated a Special Census to determine the correct population in this area to make sure the taxing districts are receiving the proper amount of State and Federal Funding. U.S. Census Bureau workers, displaying an identifying badge, will soon be going house by house through the Liberty Lakes area. Please cooperate with these individuals to help us get an accurate count of individuals in your household. The enumerator will ask you five questions for each person living in your household and the interview should only take about 10 minutes. Your answers are private. Every Census Bureau worker takes an oath to protect your answers. If they violate this oath, they’ll face a maximum of 5 years in jail and a $250,000 fine. That’s the law! The Census Bureau never releases information that identifies you or your household. The law and our respect for your privacy means you can trust the Census Bureau, AND the law applies whether or not you are a U.S. citizen. Thank you in advance for participating in our Special Census. By completing the questionnaire, you help everyone living in our community. For more information, contact our Special Census Office or visit the Census Bureau’s Web Site: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/specialcensus.html The U.S. Census Bureau is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Please read the below notice from District 118 regarding a report that Lake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating. “Dear Wauconda CUSD 118 Families, We want to make you aware of a police report that was filed yesterday with the Lake County Sheriff’s Department. The report indicated an adult male in a gold vehicle has made multiple attempts to engage in conversation with children at bus stops after school and in the early dusk hours in an unincorporated area of Lake County, the Timberlake Estates subdivision. This subdivision is within our school district boundaries, an area that is located south of Rte 12 and east of Rte 59. We would like to remind all parents to talk to your children about the importance of not talking or responding to strangers, accepting candy or gifts from strangers, or entering the car of a stranger. We have alerted our Transportation Department of this report and our drivers will be extra vigilant in watching for suspicious behavior as they drive students to and from school. Any suspicious behavior should be reported to the police. Thank you, Daniel J. Coles, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools”
