Chief Maton truly enjoyed visiting with our Trick or Treaters tonight! What a wonderful Halloween Night in Lemont!!!

Happy Halloween from Lemont Police Department! Chief Maton will be driving around the Village of Lemont today passing out treats during the trick or treat hours (3-6:30). He will also have Beanie Boo's that we gave out at Halloween Hoe Down. If a child was unable to attend the Halloween Hoe Down he will hand out the limited amount of Beanie Boo's that we have left until they are gone. Have fun! Enjoy yourself! But please be safe as you are out trick or treating!!!

Lemont Poilce Department wishes you and all around you a safe and happy Halloween!!

PLEASE for the love of our children....yield to the "STOP" arm of our school buses. Your rush to "get there" at the risk of their lives is a selfish act, to say the least. "The pickup truck was traveling in the opposite direction when it struck the students. Police say the "stop" arm on the bus was out at the time." “You gotta hold back tears, I tell ya. First responders don’t cry a lot at crash scenes but I saw tears today. It’s a sad day here in Indiana.”

Our haunted squad car was out on patrol last Saturday during Halloween Hoedown! We sure enjoyed visiting with everyone! Village of Lemont Trick or Treat Hours Wednesday, October 31, 2018 3-6:30pm Turn your porch light on if you welcome trick-or-treaters! Lemont Police Department wishes you a safe and fun Halloween!!!

We sure had a ball handing out beanies and candy at the Halloween Hoedown last Saturday! A very special thank you to Ty and Nestle for their most generous donations!! Thank you for stopping by our table and letting us see so many amazingly creative, cute and fun costumes! Wishing you a safe and wonderful Halloween from Lemont Police Department!

Please!!!! On behalf of the children, spouses, and loved ones left behind.... Do not drink and drive, text and drive, drive distracted, or drive when you are unable to control the deadly weapon in your hands. So much pain, loss, and suffering from those who feel they are "ok" to drive. Uber, Lyft, taxi, or a friend are the right decision.... This is, was, and forever more will be the wrong decision :-(

Please meet me at Lemont High School this Thursday Oct 25th from 6-8:30pm So many are joining me in creating an evening to create opportunities for parents and their children to communicate, connect and "be a village". ~ I hope to see you Thursday!!! <3 ~ Chaplain Terri

A reminder from our friends at the Illinois State Police FB page.

"A Lemont family recently recognized several officers who were able to save resident Brett Kostes' life in June."

National WEA & EAS Test - October 3, 2018 The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and Emergency Alert System (EAS) on the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed.

A warning for all of us posted by our neighboring Palos Park Police Dept. Scam alert: Your social security number isn't suspended New twist to an old scam in which Victims are receiving phone calls from scammers claiming to work for the Social Security Administration. The scammers tell the Victim they need to reactivate their suspended social security number because of some connection to fraud or other criminal activity. The scammer ask the caller to call a number to clear it up, if you do they'll try to get your personal information. they pretend to be protecting you from a scam while they're trying to lure you into one. Social security numbers do not get suspended this is a scam. The best way not to fall for these scams is to never give out anything over the phone. A legitimate agency or company will contact you by mail and you can always call them. Please keep in mind: •Do not trust a name, phone number or email address. con artists use official sounding names, caller IDs or email addresses. •Slow down and do some research online. •If you already sent money to a scammer -- contact the company you used to send the money and tell them the transaction was a fraud. •if someone has tried to steal your personal information pretending to be from a government entity, report it to the FTC. You can do it directly on their website. https://www.ftc.gov/

This is from my hometown Police Department and so proud of how Officer Tim Jones has been so very public about his incredibly hard comeback from being shot multiple times during a call gone very wrong. He is an inspiration to not only the Park Forest community, but to all who have heard of his story and watched his battle from hopeless to full of hope. #TimStrong #BadgeofCourage #Inspiration ~Chaplain Terri

Public Safety Notification We want to again encourage residents to "Lock It or Lose It". Please lock vehicles that are parked outside overnight. Close the garage door. Do not leave keys inside an unattended vehicle. If you observe any individuals who you don't recognize from the neighborhood, please contact the police by dialing 9-1-1. It is being reported from neighboring communities that the juvenile crews who are traveling the area and conducting the majority of vehicle burglaries have now been entering residences through unlocked doors and windows in order to locate vehicle keys that might be placed near a home entryway on the lower levels of a residence. As the weather moderates and windows are left open during the day, we recommend closing and locking all doors and windows overnight on the lower levels. While Lemont has not yet experience this type of criminal activity, we want to ensure that residents are taking all appropriate cautions to safeguard their property.

Be aware of your surroundings. Do not allow criminals to make you a victim. A 76-year-old woman was robbed at 8 p.m. on Monday Sept 10th, while in the parking lot of Meijer, 14169 S. Bell Road. The victim told police that while placing her groceries into the trunk of her vehicle from her shopping cart, a car with four unknown individuals inside pulled up to her shopping cart. One of the individuals leaned out of the rear passenger window, grabbed her purse from the child seat area of the cart, and they sped off. The victim had her cell phone, driver's license, and multiple credit cards inside her purse.

Please know there is help available: Crisis Text Line - 741741 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline '1-800-273-TALK (8255)' - 800-273-8255

Be alert!!! Complaints about fake rideshare drivers victimizing customers are on the rise. Uber urges all riders to follow their safety guidelines. They say before you get in any car, make sure the vehicle and license plate number matches the information in the app. Verify the driver's name and picture. And always ask the driver "who are you here for?"

It's "that" time again! Back to school and bus safety! Wishing all of our students, teachers and school administration, a safe, happy and wonderful start to the new school year!

A great time was had by all :-)

Are you aware of this law? The new law requires kids to stay rear facing until age 2 unless they exceed 40 pounds in weight or 40 inches in height. This will help reduce injuries to small children during a front end impact.

Calling all Kidz!!!! THIS Wednesday is Kops-N-Kidz night at the Car Show in downtown Lemont!!! We hope to see you there!
