If you receive an unexpected visit from someone claiming to be an employee of the Village who wants to enter your home, ask to see their official identification. The official ID card features the employee’s photo, name and the Village logo on the front.
Use the same procedure if someone claiming to be an employee of a utility company, such as Nicor or ComEd, wants to come in your home — ask to see an official ID.
If in doubt, call the Police non-emergency number, 708.386.3800. If you feel threatened, call 911.
