Safety at the Forest Preserve
If you are going to the Forest Preserve, please don't leave your purse or valuables in your car. Residents are reporting theft and break ins.

t takes less than a minute to break a car window, unlock the door, and remove items left inside. Often there are no witnesses to these offenses because of the ease and speed. 
These are crimes of opportunity and can be prevented with a little foresight and planning. 
The following Theft Prevention Tips are provided courtesy of your Lake County Forest Preserves Police Department.

  • Keep vehicle windows closed and doors locked at all times.
  • Activate your car alarm.
  • Always remove your ignition keys.
  • Never leave your vehicle running.
  • Before entering your vehicle, scan the surrounding area, and always check the interior and the floor and rear seat areas.
  • Prior to arriving at your destination, lock valuables in the trunk or glove box, hide them completely out of sight, or take them with you. A wallet or purse hidden under a newspaper or floor mat does not fool a criminal.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Don’t broadcast your movements when hiding valuables.
  • Larcenies are crimes of opportunity. When property is left unlocked or in plain view, it invites trouble.
You can assist the Lake County Forest Preserves Police Department by reporting suspicious persons, vehicles, or activities immediately at 847-549-5200. 
Scott's Law Saves Lives
Please show this to your younger drivers too!
In 2019, two Illinois State Troopers have been killed in crashes directly related to Scott’s Law violations. Scott’s Law requires all motorists to yield a full lane or, when unable to yield a full lane, reduce their speed upon approaching a vehicle with flashing lights. For everyone’s safety, if you see flashing lights, move over and slow down!  Watch this video   to learn more.
