We thought we would post this as a friendly reminder after the tragedy that just occurred in Indiana, our hearts are with the family and first responders that were part of the incident. Please remember to stop for the school bus when the stop arm is out. When you are driving in a school zone proceed with caution and please pay attention.

Some of our police personnel may start to look a little scruffy over the next month. That's because they are participating in a charity event hosted by our FOP and police department. All donations raised by No Shave November will go toward men's prostate cancer research. We will post some before and after photographs when the contest is over. Let the best beard win!

Trick or Treat hours for MG are 3:30-7:00 pm. If you are driving today, please watch out for our little munchkins!

We would like to thank Panjwani Network Restaurants, owners of the soon to be Dunkin Donuts located at 9480 Waukegan road, for the special treats they dropped off at the Police Department today. We appreciate the kind gesture!

Morton Grove, and Niles in collaboration with State Police officers conducted truck enforcement this morning on Dempster street. Overweight trucks can cause devastating accidents in a variety of ways. Excessive weight makes trucks more difficult to control and take longer to come to a complete stop. Additionally, the weight can easily cause tire blowouts, which can cause total loss of control of the truck.

ROAD CLOSURES due to Niles West Homecoming Parade will be roughly 1330-1500 (1:30-3:30 pm). Please AVOID: Oakton from Austin to Central Gross Point from Oakton to Monroe Find alternate routes.

Today Officer Tabor was at the MCC Academy teaching LEAD the Way. This week's lesson plan was on marijuana.

According to Operation Lifesaver; • Trains cannot stop quickly. Even if a locomotive engineer sees you, IT WILL TAKE THE AVERAGE TRAIN MORE THAN ONE MILE TO STOP. That is about 20 football fields. • The average train weighs 2,000 tons, and the average automobile weighs less than two tons. • A motorist is 40 times more likely to die in a crash involving a train than in a crash involving another motor vehicle. • The majority of highway/railroad collisions occur when the train is traveling less than 30 miles per hour.

We are out at the Park View School PTO fun fair! The fair runs till 3 pm.
