The police substation on 400 block of Fairbank Road at the scout cabin is for police officers reporting for duty only. There is no public contact at this building and police do not take reports. This is an effort to have officers separated from the main police facility so that we can limit any possibility of any police officers contracting coronavirus.
You can still call the police department’s non-emergency phone number at 708‑447‑2127, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. After that time, you should call 911 for all police-related services. If you come to the lobby of the police department (31 Riverside Road), it is suggested that you park your car in front of the station, call 911 for police service. The officers will respond to the front of the police station and speak to you where your car is parked. If you have to come into the lobby, there is a lobby phone you can pick up that directly rings at the consolidated dispatch center.
During this pandemic, we are trying to limit the amount of face-to-face contact officers have with individuals, so that we can continue to serve our community at full strength. These are temporary measures, and once the pandemic is deemed to be under control it is likely many of these directives will be lifted.
The police department has a vestibule that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That vestibule has a direct phone line to the consolidated dispatch center and will ring there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
For emergency call 9-1-1
