The Mundelein Police Department has been in constant contact with Mundelein High School regarding any and all complaints from the last 48 hours. We have an excellent working relationship with the school and are working together to make sure all students are safe. We have no reason to believe that there is any reason for concern. Chief Eric Guenther

Mundelein's Chief Eric Guenther named ILACP 2018 Chief of the Year SPRINGFIELD – Mundelein Police Chief Eric J. Guenther has been named the 2018 Chief of the Year by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. The award is for leadership in his community, leadership in his own police department and the law enforcement profession, and service to the association. ILACP is a 1,300-member organization representing more than 450 agencies in Illinois. Guenther will receive the award April 27 during the association’s Annual Awards Banquet in Peoria, at the conclusion of the 2018 Annual Conference. He was selected by the association’s Board of Officers from a pool of nominations from different parts of Illinois. “It is incredible how highly regarded Chief Guenther is among his peers in Lake County, and for good reason,” said Ed Wojcicki, the ILACP Executive Director. Among Guenther’s accomplishments cited by the Illinois Chiefs: • His role in creating the Lake County Opioid Initiative and the program called “A Way Out.” This is a diversion program that allows law enforcement to help place drug abusers into substance abuse programs. Guenther made a presentation on this program in 2017 at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Philadelphia. • His implementation of a Latino Police Academy, “which has become a huge success in our community,” his nomination said. “The academy opened lines of communication and built trust between the Latino residents and the Mundelein Police Department. This academy became so popular that a second session was added later in the year to keep up with the demand. Furthermore, graduates of the academies enjoyed the experience so much they formed a Latino Police Academy Alumni Association.” • Other community policing initiatives, such as a Women's Self Defense class twice a year, an A-May-Zing Mundelein event, a day to help senior citizens of the community, Citizen Academy, Senior Academy, and Junior Academy. • Implementation of employee wellness screening for all Mundelein Police Department sworn officers. The Lake County Major Crimes Task Force is also looking to mirror this program with all task force officers. This reflects a growing national concern about the physical and psychological health of sworn officers and how they handle and process the tragic events they see and experience. • The local awards the Mundelein Police Department has received. Also, the Daily Herald commended the department in 2017 “for its new program in which officers serve as classroom teachers at Mundelein High School. The more non-adversarial contact between kids and cops, the better.” • While a deputy chief, Guenther and former Mundelein Chief Ray Rose, along with Deputy Chief Michael O’Brien, co-authored an article for the international Police Chief magazine in 2011 about promoting services for the Hispanic community. This was part of Mundelein’s broader community policing philosophy, which has been in effect since the early 1990s. • Guenther has the distinction of being a Certified Police Chief by ILACP, which means he has mastered the knowledge and skills to be a successful 21st century police chief. About 10 percent of active Illinois chiefs have this certification. Also, his department has achieved National Accredited Agency status “With Excellence” by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Guenther has been the Mundelein police chief since 2013. He was also named Director of Public Safety on an interim basis in 2015, with oversight of police and fire. He was first hired by the Mundelein Police Department in 1995 and climbed through the ranks of investigator, sergeant, commander, and deputy chief. “The Village of Mundelein should be very proud of its chief because he excels in so many ways,” said ILACP President James R. Kruger, who is also police chief in Oak Brook. “Chief Guenther cares a great deal about the community he serves, the officers in his department, and the role of law enforcement in society.” Guenther earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in Criminal Justice-Law and a master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas in Public Safety Administration. He attended two prestigious professional development schools: the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command and the FBI National Academy at Quantico, Virginia. He also attended the Senior Management Institute for Police hosted by the Police Executive Research Forum and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. 2017 winner: Chief Nicholas Gailius, Fairview Heights 2016 winner: Chief Timothy McCarthy, Orland Park

IRS Urges Public to Stay Alert for Scam Phone Calls The IRS continues to warn consumers to guard against scam phone calls from thieves intent on stealing their money or their identity. Criminals pose as the IRS to trick victims out of their money or personal information. Here are several tips to help you avoid being a victim of these scams: Scammers make unsolicited calls. Thieves call taxpayers claiming to be IRS officials. They demand that the victim pay a bogus tax bill. They con the victim into sending cash, usually through a prepaid debit card or wire transfer. They may also leave “urgent” callback requests through phone “robo-calls,” or via phishing email (link is external). Callers try to scare their victims. Many phone scams use threats to intimidate and bully a victim into paying. They may even threaten to arrest, deport or revoke the license of their victim if they don’t get the money. Scams use caller ID spoofing. Scammers often alter caller ID to make it look like the IRS or another agency is calling. The callers use IRS titles and fake badge numbers to appear legitimate. They may use the victim’s name, address and other personal information to make the call sound official. Cons try new tricks all the time. Some schemes provide an actual IRS address where they tell the victim to mail a receipt for the payment they make. Others use emails that contain a fake IRS document with a phone number or an email address for a reply. These scams often use official IRS letterhead in emails or regular mail that they send to their victims. They try these ploys to make the ruse look official. Scams cost victims over $23 million. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, or TIGTA, has received reports of about 736,000 scam contacts since October 2013. Nearly 4,550 victims have collectively paid over $23 million as a result of the scam. The IRS will not: Call you to demand immediate payment. The IRS will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail. Demand that you pay taxes and not allow you to question or appeal the amount you owe. Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For instance, require that you pay with a prepaid debit card. Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Threaten to bring in police or other agencies to arrest you for not paying. If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do: Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately. Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting (link is external)” web page. You can also call 800-366-4484. Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant (link is external)” on FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes. If you know you owe, or think you may owe tax: Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you. Phone scams first tried to sting older people, new immigrants to the U.S. and those who speak English as a second language. Now the crooks try to swindle just about anyone. And they’ve ripped-off people in every state in the nation. Stay alert to scams that use the IRS as a lure. Tax scams can happen any time of year, not just at tax time. For more, visit “Tax Scams and Consumer Alerts (link is external)” on IRS.gov. Each and every taxpayer has a set of fundamental rights they should be aware of when dealing with the IRS. These are your Taxpayer Bill of Rights (link is external). Explore your rights and our obligations to protect them on IRS.gov.

The Mundelein Police Department is now collecting toys for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. You can drop off your unwrapped toys in the boxes in our upper and lower lobby now through December 16th. U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program MISSION: The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. GOAL: The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future. ACTIVITIES: The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.
