Due to the horrific accident in Indiana, that took the lives of multiple children, we feel it is imperative to reiterate School Bus Safety. Remember to always use caution near a school bus, and NEVER pass a school bus with its stop arm activated. Source: Illinois State Board of Education

We really enjoyed interacting with the kids this evening. We would like to thank Tori Hollis for sharing this photo of Cpl. Hammond and her beautiful children with us. Moments like this are what make our job a little easier.

All drivers are urged to slow down and stay alert for pedestrians. Special attention should be used when backing out of a driveway. Costumes When choosing a costume, stay away from billowing or long trailing fabric to aid in preventing your child from tripping or falling. If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so they can see out. Make sure costumes are brightly colored or at least have reflective markings to make them visible to motorists. Reflective tape can be used to trim costumes and treat bags. When using a toy firearm with a costume, make sure the toy gun has an orange tip on the end of the barrel. Candy Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy only. Parents should warn children to have an adult examine all treats before they are eaten. It may be wise to have children eat before they go out so they will be less likely to eat candy prior to inspection. General Safety Tips Parents should accompany children, especially small children, while they are trick-or-treating. Provide children with flashlights or glow sticks to carry for lighting. Warn children to NEVER enter the home or car of someone they do not know. Instruct children never to run out into the street and to always look both ways before Suspicious activity should be reported to Posen Police Department immediately by calling 911

Good afternoon Residents, Just wanted to let everyone know that I have a meeting scheduled with the Executive Director of Chicago Bungalow & Chicago Vintage Homes next Wednesday, October 30, 2018.

Just a reminder, on October 3, 2018 at 1:18 pm, The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. Cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for approximately 30 minutes beginning at 1:18 pm. During this time, WEA compatible cell phones that are switched on, within range of an active cell tower, and whose wireless provider participates in WEA should be capable of receiving the test message. Some cell phones will not receive the test message, and cell phones should only receive the message once. The WEA test message will have a header that reads "Presidential Alert" and text that says: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” The WEA system is used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. The national test will use the same special tone and vibration as with all WEA messages (i.e. Tornado Warning, AMBER Alert). Users cannot opt out of the WEA test. The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency. The test is made available to EAS participants and is scheduled to last approximately one minute. The test message will be similar to regular monthly EAS test messages with which you are familiar. While you might think this is inconvenient, it’s important to test critical infrastructure before an emergency not during.

This afternoon we received a call for a suspicious subject on a bicycle that was observed entering the back yard of a vacant residence. Our officers arrived and observed that the back door of the residence had been forced open and they could hear someone moving around inside. Moments later the offender attempted the flee out the rear door and was quickly apprehended. A check of the interior of the residence revealed that the offender cut open the drywall in an attempt to steal the copper pipes. We would like to thank the caller for being alert and getting involved. This just goes to show what we can accomplish when we work together as a community.
