Park Ridge Police Department wishes you a Happy and Safe Halloween! City of Park Ridge official 2018 Trick or Treat hours are 3:30pm – 8:00pm. Here are some helpful safety tips for you to consider: 1. Do not allow young children to go "Trick or Treating" alone. Be sure older children TAKE A FRIEND and an ADULT accompanies young children. 2. Be certain to accompany young children to the door of every house they approach. 3. Children should be cautioned that they should NOT enter any home without prior permission from their parents. 4. Children should be cautioned not to approach any vehicle, occupied or not, unless they know the owner and are accompanied by a parent. 5. Make sure that all children carry a glow stick or wear reflective clothing. 6. When using facial masks, make sure that children can see and breathe properly and easily. 7. All costumes and masks should be clearly marked as flame resistant. 8. Do not allow children to carry realistic looking firearms as part of their costume. 9. Children should be warned to NEVER approach any house that is not well lit and does not have a porch or "outside" light on. 10. Children should be cautioned to remember any suspicious incidents and report them to their parents and/or the proper official. 11. Children should be cautioned to run away from people who try to trick them with special treats. 12. Children should be instructed to scream and make a scene if anyone tries to grab them or force them, in any way, to go with them. 13. Parents should inspect all treats and dispose of anything that seems to have been tampered with, has been opened, or is not wrapped.

Park Ridge Police arrest man for snap chat posts. Park Ridge Police arrested Mustafa Obaid, an 18 year old resident of Unincorporated Des Plaines during the early morning hours of Wednesday October 17, 2018 in the 8800 block of Dee Road, Des Plaines. Mr. Obaid was arrested by the Park Ridge Police following his detention by Cook County Sheriff’s Police based on alerts sent by the Park Ridge Police Department. Late in the evening of Tuesday October 16, 2018 Park Ridge Police were alerted by numerous concerned parents about a Snap-Chat posting in which Obaid was posed holding a black hand gun. Park Ridge Police sent numerous units into the area of the 8800 block of Dee Road and alerted the Cook County Sheriff’s Police, leading to Obaid’s detention and arrest shortly before 1:00 am. A search of Obaid’s vehicle recovered a black air-soft replica weapon, which was confirmed to be the weapon displayed in the Snap-Chat posting. Obaid has been charged with one Misdemeanor count of Disorderly Conduct, and has a pending court appearance in the Second District of Cook County, Skokie November 30, 2018. The swift success in locating and arresting Obaid is due to the timely information provided by numerous concerned teens and adults, as well as the cooperation between the Park Ridge Police Department and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police. The efforts of all the individuals involved allowed for the arrest of Obaid without incident and ensured the safety of the community.
