I would like to take this opportunity to thank our residents and businesses for their cooperation and patience over the last couple of days.  This has been a significant undertaking by our department and I understand that many of you have been inconvenienced by the event.  I am pleased to report that there were no incidents of criminal activity reported, injuries to participants or officers, and no arrests over the two day period.  I do realize that some of you did experience parking concerns or non-customers entering your buildings especially during the severe weather outbreak on Wednesday.  We did our best to minimize the impact these incidents had to your operation and used discretion when possible to address those concerns in a measured response.  As you are all aware, law enforcement is under tremendous scrutiny in our society today to insure the constitutional rights of all citizens are protected.  Our plan for this event was to maintain order, and at the same time safeguard the rights of free speech and assembly guaranteed to all.  This is especially mindful during this coming Memorial Day weekend as we remember those that died protecting those same rights and our very way of life.     

On behalf of the Oak Brook Police Department, thank you again for your contribution and helping us keep Oak Brook a safe and wonderful community. 

James R. Kruger Jr. 
Chief of Police
