How do residents report crime tips or suspicious activity?
Any action that requires immediate police assistance, including suspicious persons or activities occurring at the moment, should be called in to the police dispatch center at 9-1-1 for emergencies and at 847-982-5900 for non-emergencies.

Citizens with information about a crime, suspicious persons or activities that have already occurred, or the whereabouts of a wanted suspect can call the Crime Tip Hotline at 847-933-TIPS (8477). Any information regarding suspicious activity or known criminal activity can be reported anonymously. However, it is encouraged that when information is provided to the police department, citizens give contact information so that police officers can then follow up with updates on the information provided.
