Crime Prevention

The Lombard Police Department wants to work in partnership with residents and homeowners as part of our commitment to community-oriented policing. The Lombard Police Department advocates that the one of the best ways to protect your home, in your absence, is to enlist the aid of trusted friends, neighbors and/or relatives. We need to work together in crime prevention.

Residents should have a responsible party regularly checking their home while they are away, to help ensure the safety and security of your home and your property. That person should maintain the home in a lived in condition, for example, mowing the lawn or shoveling snow, picking up newspapers or other handbills, collecting the mail, opening and closing blinds, and so forth.
The Lombard Police Department will respond to your house if the responsible party or neighbor sees something out of the ordinary. In the event that the Lombard Police Department responds to your residence, and we need to get a hold of you or a responsible party, we request that you complete an Emergency Contact Information form, available at the Police Department.
