The Oak Brook Police Department has initiated a Vacation House Watch Program as a public service and crime prevention measure in order to prevent and detect crime on affected residential properties while residents are away. To learn more about this program, .
Trick or Treat hours for the Village of Oak Brook are 3:00pm until 7:00pm on Friday, October 31, 2014. To make sure you have a fun and safe Halloween, follow these safety tips:
- Never trick or treat alone. Older children should go in groups, and younger children should be accompanied by a trusted adult.
- Only approach homes that are well-lit both inside and outside.
- Make sure to wear reflective clothing or costumes. Also be sure that facial masks fit properly so children are able to see and breathe easily.
- Have a trusted adult check for tampering in all food and candy received. When in doubt, throw it out.
- The Poison Control Center can be contacted at (800) 222-1222.
Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative in which police officers and community members come together in an informal setting to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. The program's goal is to improve communication by breaking down barriers, allowing for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. To view the flyer for the next event, click here.
