Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is a program that involves the joint efforts of the police and the community. It enhances neighborhood security, heightens the community's power of observation, and encourages mutual assistance and concern among neighbors.

Awareness and communication are most important for an effective Neighborhood Watch program. With concerned, alert residents and responsive law enforcement, our neighborhoods will not be an easy target for criminals.

Help make our beautiful neighborhood even more wonderful and safe by participating in Neighborhood Watch.

Please report ALL crime and suspicious activity to the police. The police department uses this information to supply additional support to neighborhoods when needed.

Metropolitan Alliance of Police Solicitation Calls

Many residents and business owners may be receiving solicitation phone calls asking for a financial donation to, what they interpret to be, the New Lenox Police Department. When these solicitors call, please listen carefully to the caller. The New Lenox Police Department does not solicit monetary donations. Any donations made will not benefit the operations of the New Lenox Police Department. Operations for the Police Department are funded through tax dollars. The union representing the sergeants of the New Lenox Police Department, the Metropolitan Alliance of Police, will be making these solicitation calls. Any donation will go to that union. Additionally, any donation made will not have an effect (either positive or negative) on the service delivery of the New Lenox Police Department.

The union is allowed to solicit for funds and must legally represent themselves during the phone conversation. However, many residents and business owners have voiced confusion and concern over these calls in the past. If you receive a call and are confused, ask the caller what a donation would fund and what organization would receive it. Anyone with questions or concerns should contact Deputy Chief April DiSandro at the New Lenox Police Department at (815) 462-6100.
