Police Department Unveils Online System for Overnight / Visitor Parking Police Departments from La Grange, La Grange Park, and Western Springs, in close cooperation with the Lyons Township Area Communications Center (LTACC), are pleased to announce a new online overnight visitor parking registration system for residents. Using public safety software available through Frontline Public Safety Solutions (Frontline PSS), residents can now request online overnight parking in accordance with local municipal ordinances. Frontline PSS provides a user-friendly, easily-accessible, and secure way to register a vehicle for overnight parking on Village streets. The overnight parking module allows users to create entries of authorized vehicles and their specific locations, and this information becomes available in real-time to patrolling officers -- saving both time and resources. This online, public portal not only simplifies the process for overnight parking, it also provides an effective means for Police Departments and LTACC to more effectively share and manage the data associated with these requests. In addition to the new online system, residents can still call in overnight parking requests to LTACC at 708-352-2059, or the Police Department's non-emergency number (708)579-2333 option 1. For more information on Frontline PSS, or to register your vehicle for an online overnight parking pass, please visit www.frontlinepss.com/lagrange or contact Deputy Chief Andy Peters at apeters@villageoflagrange.com or (708)579-2333 extension 2257. Please visit the Village website for more information regarding overnight and visitor parking. Overnight visitor parking is limited to five requests per month. http://www.villageoflagrange.com/DocumentCenter/View/1717

***NEWS RELEASE*** September 20, 2018 At 3:30 am, The La Grange Police Department responded to a suspicious activity call related to a social media post. The social media post vaguely described a potential threat at Lyons Township High School. The information provided to the La Grange PD was third party, and an immediate investigation began to determine the source of the post and the credibility of the potential threat. La Grange PD, Western Springs PD, and Lyons Township High School worked in a collaborative effort to quickly identify possible sources and initiate a safety plan for the start of school for the district. A suspected Juvenile was identified very early in the investigation, voluntarily submitted to an interview and provided information about the social media message. The Investigations Division is working diligently on the case and the suspected Juvenile continues to cooperate with the investigation. In addition to the police investigation, the juvenile faces potential school discipline. Anyone with information is asked to notify the La Grange Police Department at (708) 579-2333. * * * NEWS RELEASE * * *

* * * CRIME BULLETIN * * * Burglary to Motor Vehicles The La Grange Police Department is investigating three (3) motor vehicle burglaries that occurred between approximately 5:50 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 19, 2018. The vehicle burglaries took place in 00 block of both N. Ashland and N. Catherine. An unknown offender(s) broke windows on all three of the vehicles to gain entry. Purses and contents were taken in two of the three car burglaries. The third vehicle was ransacked but nothing was reportedly taken. It appears the unknown offender(s) might be targeting recreational facilities, such as gyms and parks, where they know vehicle owners might be more apt to leave valuables in their car while participating in an exercise class or sporting event. Similar incidents have occurred in neighboring jurisdictions. Please remain vigilant and remove valuables from your vehicles. Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is being asked to contact the Police Department at (708) 579-2333. The most effective ways for residents to prevent car burglaries is to keep all vehicle doors and windows closed and locked at all times. Here are a few additional tips: 1. Call 911 immediately if you observe any of the following: • Unfamiliar subjects looking into parked vehicles • Unfamiliar subjects walking around pulling on car door handles • Unusual dog barking • Suspicious, unfamiliar, occupied vehicles 2. If you must leave valuables in your vehicle, lock them in the trunk or hide them. Do not leave them in plain view. If you leave items visible in your vehicle, you are a target. 3. Do not leave garage door openers in parked vehicles. Once inside your vehicle, thieves will have access to your garage. They can return later and gain entry into your garage when you are not home. The La Grange Police Department conducts regular patrols. The sooner you call, the sooner the officer can investigate any leads/suspects. Please report any suspicious activity immediately by dialing 9-1-1. ​* * * CRIME BULLETIN * * *

Yesterday a concerned citizen brought this kitten in that he found near Tilden/ Shawmut and we brought the kitten to Hinsdale Humane Society to get medical treatment. Luckily, we were also able to give Hinsdale Humane Society a $270 donation raised from the dunk tank fundraiser at the National Night Out Event earlier this month. Big thanks to Hinsdale Humane Society for helping our 4 legged friends and the officers willing to get dunked so we can give back to them! And the BIGGEST thanks to those who came out to the event and had fun with us, making this all possible!

La Grange Police Chief Kurt Bluder has announced the arrest of Michael Anderson for Aggravated Battery with a Firearm, Aggravated Kidnapping and Armed Robbery in connection with a shooting that occurred in the alleyway to the rear of the 100 block of Hayes on June 29, 2018. ​On June 29, 2018, at 11:19 p.m., officers from the La Grange Police Department responded to the area of Hayes and Calendar for a gunshot victim. Upon arrival, officers located a person in a backyard with a gunshot wound to his side. The man was conscious and able to speak with officers at the scene. He was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released. The offenders were no longer in the area when the officers arrived. ​Officers learned that the encounter began socially between the victim and several men but turned violent when Michael Anderson displayed a gun and demanded the victim’s personal belongings. During the course of the robbery the victim was shot in the side. ​The Cook County States Attorney’s Office has approved charges against Michael Anderson for involvement in this incident. Michael Anderson was arrested on July 9, 2018 and is being held without bond at the Cook County Jail. ​Chief Kurt Bluder and the men and woman of the La Grange Police Department would like to thank the Major Case Assistance Team (MCAT) for their hard work and support during this investigation. This case would not have culminated in an arrest without the assistance of this multi-jurisdictional task force.
