  • Premise Alert Program
    Based on legislation passed in the State of Illinois during the latter part of 2009, law enforcement agencies in conjunction with their PSAPs (dispatch services) are to provide residents and others with special needs situations, who are located in their jurisdictions, an opportunity to be enrolled and entered into a Premise Alert Program (PAP) database within the PSAP; an entry that will alert emergency personnel (Police and Fire), when responding to the enrolled persons residence or business location, that there is a specified special needs situation that may be involved.

  • Red Light Enforcement Information
    Red Light Enforcement began in August 2009. The Village of East Dundee began operating a red light enforcement camera at the intersection of Penny Avenue & Higgins Road and Dundee Avenue and Higgins Road. The intersection is identified as "Red Light Photo Enforced" through signage. The Village has three main objectives for implementing the program:
    1. to reduce the number of injury crashes resulting from right angle and turning collisions.
    2. reduce the total number of crashes at an intersection overall.
    3. reduce the number of Red Light Violations at the selected intersections.

    Enforcement Citations will be issued to motorists who run red lights without stopping OR fail to come to a complete stop before turning right on red when safe to do so.
Motorists WILL NOT be cited if:
    • The motorist enters an intersection on a green or yellow light which turns red before they have a chance to make a left turn.
    • The vehicle was yielding to an emergency vehicle or lawfully participating in a funeral procession.
    A violation notice form will include information on options that can be chosen.

    The department has two certified child safety seat technician that inspects child safety seats to ensure that they are properly installed in vehicles. These inspections are provided free of cost but are done by appointment only.

Holiday Crime Prevention

As the holidays approach, many people are starting/continuing to shop for their loved ones. Here are some tips to prevent delivered packages from being stolen from porches and garages. With more and more people doing their shopping online, packages delivered to your doorstep have become a prime target for theft. To ensure safe delivery of your packages and keep them out of the hands of thieves, follow these important security tips:

1) Have packages delivered to where you are, not where you aren't. Your home is not the only place you can have your packages delivered. For example, if you work during the day, have items you order online delivered to your place of business instead of your home address. Instruct family and friends to do the same for packages they mail to you throughout the year.

2) Set up alternative delivery/pickup options through your local delivery services. Whether the majority of your packages are delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, UPS, or FedEx, each offers alternative delivery and pickup options. For example, UPS has an expanding Access Point network that provides for delivery and pickup of packages at local grocery or convenience stores in various neighborhoods. Let the delivery company know when you will be home.

3) Discourage thieves from targeting your residence with a few strategic home security devices. Home surveillance cameras can be effective crime deterrents. Your home security cameras should be prominently displayed where potential criminals can see them, yet high enough to prevent them from being tampered with. Outdoor security lighting and a home alarm system can also be effective crime deterrents.

4) Keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles and subjects in your neighborhood. Putting a stop to package theft and residential burglaries is a team effort. Talk to your neighbors and encourage everyone to keep an eye out for suspicious activity (i.e. an individual or vehicle following a delivery truck, a stranger removing a package from outside a residence, etc).

Please report suspicious activity or a theft to the East Dundee Police Department by calling 911.
