2018 Illinois Rail Safety Week (September 23-29)
Is this your dog???? This little guy was found wandering in the south end of town. If you're the owner, or know the owner, please contact the Schiller Park Police Department at 847-678-4794
Vehicle burglaries continue to be an all too common problem in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Suspects usually target unlocked vehicles and ones with valuables in plain sight. The Schiller Park Police Department would like to remind residents and visitors to lock their vehicles when leaving them unattended and to never leave valuables in your vehicle, but if you must...keep them out of sight. As always, report any suspicious activity to the police.
It is that time of year again, Schiller Park Police Department’s National Night Out!!! The primary purpose of National Night Out is to get neighbors to leave their front porch lights on, showing their support for their local police departments in the fight against crime. Residents are encouraged to get out of their houses and meet other neighbors in the area and to get to know them. The theory being that if neighbors meet and get to know each other, they are more apt to report suspicious activity in their neighborhood rather than “look the other way” when they see something awry. When you know your neighbors and watch out for them, overall crime in the area is reduced. After all, there’s no better way to fight crime than with community spirit! The event provides a way for residents and Officers to meet one another and discover how we can mutually keep our town a place we all want to live, work, and play as crime free and with the highest quality of life possible. The Village of Schiller Park encourages all residents to participate on Tuesday, August 7, 2018. During the event, residents throughout Schiller Park are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, Police Officers, Firefighters and other Village personnel. Our free event will be held at the Anna Montana Water Park & Memorial Pool, 4001 N. Scott St. from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Jump in the pool, have some refreshments, join in the games, enjoy the entertainment, and come together to build a stronger and safer neighborhood!

COOK COUNTY SHERIFF'S POLICE DEPARTMENT COMPLETES INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION CASE REVIEWS ARE CLEARED AND CLOSED NO FACT OR EVIDENCE SUGGEST NEED FOR CRIMINAL COMPLAINT Schiller Park - The Cook County Sheriff’s Police Department has completed its independent case review of two deaths that took place in Schiller Park. They were asked to investigate the 2000 death of Mary Kolodziej and the 2008 death of Lorraine Michalski. The independent investigation was initiated by Barbara Piltaver, who was the Village President of Schiller Park at the time of the request. Previous investigations by the Schiller Park Police Department and the Cook County Medical Examiner concluded that Ms. Kolodziej’s death was an apparent suicide. They also concluded that Ms. Michalski’s death was due to an accidental overdose. After a thorough investigation, the Cook County Sheriff’s Department concluded that no amendment to the original Cause and Manner of Death findings be made and that there was no evidence to support a criminal complaint in either of these deaths. The Sheriff's Department noted some investigative procedures that the Schiller Park Police Department could improve upon. Many of these suggestions, which pertained to procedures that were used in 2000 and 2008, had already been implemented prior to this investigation. The Schiller Park Police Department appreciates the observations and advice of the Sheriff's Department, and we thank them for the comprehensive review of these cases. The Cook County Sherriff's Department's complete report, as provided to the village, can be read at the following link: http://www.villageofschillerpark.com/DocumentCenter/View/1680
