Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
As motorists hit the road to celebrate Thanksgiving, drivers and passengers can expect a ticket from the Oak Park Police if they are spotted without a seat belt. Stepped-up patrols and seat belt enforcement zones will be seen throughout Oak Park and the state Nov. 17-27.
The 2017 fall leaf collection program is scheduled for October 16 through November 30, with seven pickups planned for each quadrant of the Village. Leaves raked into the streetsare pushed into piles during the night, and then collected for recycling the following day.
Residences selected at random have been invited to participate in a community survey to help policy makers better understand priorities for government action and citizen opinions on quality of life and public services. All responses are anonymous.
Nearly 90 percent of all crime in Oak Park is against property, but armed robberies and vehicle hijackings do sometimes occur here. The best defense, Oak Park Police say, is to try to avoiding being an easy victim.
Residents interested in really getting to know the details of their Oak Park properties have a new Community Portal online resource available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Through October, Oak Park residents and users can take advantage of a special offer and pay only $59.99 for an annual Divvy Bikes membership, a savings of nearly $40 off the regular annual membership price of $99. Oak Park is home to 13 stations in the Divvy bike sharing network.
A detective commander with 23 years of experience with the Oak Park Police Department has been named Deputy Chief. LaDon Reynolds will be officially sworn in at 6 p.m., Mon., Sept. 25 in the Council Chamber at Village Hall, 123 Madison St.
VOP-TV, the broadcast component of the Village's public information programs, was named best in programming excellence by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.
Oak Park Police are using simple silicone bracelets to help break down communication barriers during emergencies when first responders encounter individuals with autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia or other mental health issues.
Police say a few simple steps like removing the key often can help deter car thieves, whether you're involved in a bump-and-run ruse or the target of an old-fashioned vehicle theft.
When it comes to saving lives, every minute counts for the firefighter/paramedics responding to a 911 call. That’s why every ambulance and fire engine deployed by the Oak Park Fire Department is equipped to deliver advance life support (ALS) at the scene.
Like it or not, coyotes are a permanent fixture in Oak Park. But just seeing a coyote does not necessarily mean a dangerous situation for humans or domestic animals, officials say.
