It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the tragic loss of former Chief of Police, Stan Smith. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace brother, you will be greatly missed!

The Kirkland Police Department would like to help you with some Halloween safety do's and don'ts: - Do carry flashlights, wear reflective tape, or carry glowsticks so that you and your Trick-or-Treater can be seen by motorists. - Don't go into the creepy basement to check what made that loud crashing sound. Just run away. Nothing good comes from creepy basement sounds. - Do make sure to drive slowly and cautiously this evening as there will be a lot of traffic and pedestrians! - Don't ignore the warnings from the creepy guy sitting in the rocking chair that says, "I wouldn't go any farther if I were you." - Do make sure to dress warm. Hats and gloves might be necessary this evening. - Don't run back into the house when the terrifying creature is chasing you. It never ends well in the movies for those people. - Do make sure to cross at intersections or in cross walks. - Don't check on the monster to make sure you have defeated it. You haven't.... - Do closely examine the candy your child has collected when you return home. - Don't eat your child's candy when you get home. Wait until they go to sleep! The Trick or Treat hours for the Village of Kirkland will be 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Lets all have a safe and fun Halloween!

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter.

Chief Davenport spoke with Hiawatha students today about school safety and A.L.I.C.E training (Alert. Lockdown. Inform. Counter. Evacuate.) Shortly after, students took place in an evacuation drill accompanied by teachers and school staff. Emergency response personnel from the Kirkland Police Department and Kirkland Fire Department assisted in the drill to make sure students were kept safe. Additional A.L.I.C.E. drills will be scheduled in the coming weeks. We would like to thank everyone who participated in this drill for their cooperation and professionalism.

Please share! It is unlawful for a driver to pass a school bus that has stopped to load or unload children when its stop signal arm is extended. Illinois law provides that the driving privileges of a person convicted of passing a stopped school bus will be suspended for three months and recieve a fine of $150 for the first offense. If a second conviction occurs within five years, the driver will receive a one year suspension and a $500 fine. Please help keep our children safe!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

The Kirkland Police Department has received multiple car burglaries throughout the Village. All vehicles had similar small items taken out of them as well as left unlocked. No vehicle burglarized had been reported locked up. At this time we believe two suspects were working together and an investigation is underway. We encourage anyone with information regarding this case to contact the Kirkland PD @ 815-522-3315 or Sr. Officer Miller @ 815-757-6326. You may remain anonymous if you like. We appreciate any assistance we can. We also encourage anyone to report any crime no matter how big or small it may have been. It allows us to track crime patterns and helps us schedule our officers appropriately. Thank you and be vigilant folks.

The Kirkland Police Department would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours. Please remember to take your time traveling to your destinations, wear your seatbelts and drink responsibly.
