Roadside Safety Checkpoint Notice

The Addison Police Department will be conducting a Roadside Safety Checkpoint from 9:00 PM, Friday, June 7, 2019, to 1:00 AM, Saturday June 8, 2019 for vehicles traveling eastbound on Lake Street east of John F. Kennedy Drive.

Vehicles traveling eastbound on Lake Street on June 7, 2019 will be stopped in a pre-established, systematic fashion for a brief inspection of safety and driver violations. Police will be checking vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses, proof of insurance, and driver sobriety in addition to vehicle safety violations.

The purpose of conducting the Roadside Safety Checkpoint is to enhance the safety of the motoring public in the Village of Addison. A statewide, coordinated effort to reduce drinking and driving is underway and the Addison Police Department is a proud partner in this venture.

Our hope is that citizens can look at this minor inconvenience as their contribution to the safety of the motoring public and their opportunity to be part of the solution. If you have any questions or request additional information, please contact Sergeant Dennis Kotlinski at 630- 543-3080.

Community Response Unit - Tip of the Month

Letting your grass and weeds grow higher than 6 inches makes your home look unoccupied.  Burglars most often choose homes that look unoccupied, have the easiest access, offer the greatest amount of cover, and the best escape routes.

Addison Police Join 'Neighbors' by Ring

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: May 15, 2019

Addison Police Joins ‘Neighbors’ by Ring to Provide Users with Real-Time, Local Crime and Safety Information 

Neighbors aims to reduce crime in communities by connecting people, security cameras and law enforcement.  

Addison, IL-- 05/15/2019– The Addison Police today announced that it is joining the free Neighbors app by Ring to provide the Addison community with real-time, local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe.   

Residents can text addisonil to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on iOS and Android and use the app to; join their neighborhood; share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; and receive real-time safety alerts from their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.  

Director of Addison Police Tim Hayden said, “The Neighbors app makes it easy for residents to keep one another informed of local crime and safety situations occurring in their neighborhood. Now Addison Police can join the conversation directly and benefit all of us by helping to solve crimes and further the mission of the Addison Police in ensuring the safety and security of all who live, work and frequent Addison. The Addison Police Department will also be able to write their own posts and help spread information about recent crimes in the area or real-time crime information. The Neighbors app by Ring is completely free to anyone and Addison residents do not need to have a camera in order to participate in this program. 

The Addison Police Department is among other agencies in Illinois to partner with Ring for this crime fighting tool. Like other social media sharing platforms, the Neighbors app is not meant to replace 911. If Addison residents see a crime or suspicious activity occurring they are asked to immediately dial 911. 

Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said, “We’re excited to have the Addison Police join Neighbors to keep their community up-to-date on local crime and safety information. Over the past few years we have learned that, when neighbors, the Ring team and law enforcement all work together, we can create safer communities. Neighbors is meant to facilitate real-time communication between these groups, while maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost. By bringing security to every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, the Addison community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”
