Sign up for updates…Residents interested in receiving timely and informative neighborhood updates from their police residential beat officer are invited to sign up for monthly newsletters that provide helpful, practical information via email, the content tailored to the neighborhoods they serve. RBOs also hold regular meetings in their neighborhoods — or zones — to discuss issues, report on crime trends, provide crime prevention tips and answer questions. The meetings currently are held virtually due to COVID-19. More information about each officer, as well as a map of the zones and how to sign up for email, is available at www.oak-park.us/rbo.
Safe venue for transactions…The Oak Park Police Department lobby is always available as a safe venue for finalizing transactions or conducting exchanges. The lobby, located in the lower level of Village Hall, 123 Madison St., is well-lit and staffed 24 hours a day. Residents are encouraged to make use of the lobby if they are buying or selling items online that require an in-person transaction. Social distancing and a mask are required.
