Today marks a milestone for the Grandview (IL) Police Department. After 28 years of service, Chief Michael Feleccia has retired from law enforcement. Chief, your service to this community has not gone unnoticed. 28 years of taking drunk drivers off the roads, solving serious crimes and helping people in their time of need. This job is often times thankless, but not today. I've seen everything you do behind the scenes. It's strange to think about what the Village of Grandview would be like without your service. I personally would like to thank you, Chief, for getting my and many others start in law enforcement. With law enforcement being one of the most competitive career fields, you saw the good in people and produced MANY phenomenal police officers. I can confidently say that any officer brought in under your guidance is poised for greatness in their career. Chief Michael Feleccia badge #105. Thank you for your service and enjoy your retirement. -Officer Byerline #194

Good afternoon. We just want to put out a notice and caution to Grandview residents, especially on the south side of N. Grand. We have had several-confirmed sightings of a red fox in the Grandview area, especially in the wooded area, south of Enterprise. We also have one confirmed attack on a small dog. Citizens and officers have both observed the fox, and unfortunately, it has ventured into backyards and been spotted very near N. Grand. From what he have determined, these animals are frightened by humans and pose very little threat. They are most active at night. However if cornered, or feel threatened, they may attack. The big concern is they are known to attack small dogs and other small animals. So, if you live in these areas, please use extra caution if you are letting your small animals, or even small children, outside. We have contacted the Department of Natural Resources to assist with a solution to this problem. There are still a lot of residents unaware of this FaceBook page, so please try and inform your neighbors as well.. Thank You

Grandview, IL —as summer kicks off and travel increases, the Grandview Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. The national seat-belt enforcement campaign will take place May 15th through June 2, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year. Click It or Ticket enforces seat-belt and car-seat use to keep all motorists safe. Law enforcement personnel see firsthand the loss of life when people refuse to buckle up. It’s such a simple thing, and it should be an automatic response when you get into a vehicle. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the summer vacation season ramps up, we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to stay safe in the unfortunate event of a crash.” The most recent crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 43 percent of passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2015 were unrestrained. That percentage increases to 57 percent when just looking at crashes that occur between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. That’s why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement. Participating law enforcement agencies will be taking a no-excuses approach, writing citations day and night. Motorists caught not buckled up will be ticketed, and those caught driving impaired will be arrested.

Good Morning. Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. With the warmer weather comes more foot traffic as more people get outside. The Grandview Police Department would like to remind people to report suspicious activity, and also remind everyone to secure their vehicles and residence when not home, or at night. Just recently, the police department received a report of an unknown person(s) entering a residence on Reservoir street and taking a laptop. This theft occurred between the hours of 8 and 9am. We are currently conducting an investigation of this Burglary, but it does serve as a reminder for citizens to remain alert and watch out for not only your property, but that of your neighbors. If anyone has any information regarding this Burglary, or any other suspicious activity, call the police department at 622-4626. If it's an emergency, call 911. Fortunately, we have had very few reports of thefts and burglaries in the village, and I do believe that is because of the combination of citizen help and police patrols.
