Landlords, we now have a tool to assist you in your business and to make Round Lake Heights a safer, more enjoyable place to live and work. The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was created by Ordinance 2006-O-14 and establishes an enforceable code of conduct for tenants.
This ordinance will help minimize problems you encounter with certain tenants and will help make Round Lake Heights a better place to live. Other local communities have also implemented this identical program and have enjoyed the same success that we have.
All landlords are required to attend a Crime Free Multi-Housing Program training session that are held periodically at the Village of Round Lake Heights Hall. Please contact Crime Free Housing Specialist Cindy Thommes at (847) 546-9704 ext. 306 to inquire about upcoming classes.
Every Landlord is required to attend, even if you have only one residential rental unit. If you have a property manager that is not the owner, they can attend on your behalf. The property manager cannot be the tenant. If you have attended the Crime Free Multi-Housing class within the last two years from another municipality, we will accept that class when you provide proof (certificate) of attendance to us.

The "Parents Guide to Gangs" with the help of the Round Lake Area Police Departments and the Round Lake Area School District 116 Bi-Lingual Parent Coordinator. It is meant as only an introduction to gangs, and by no means has all the answers. We hope that reading it will help you open a dialogue with your children about the dangers that exist in the world around them. For further help, contact your local department or one of the agencies in the directory.

IDThisPerson.com is a private endeavor created to assist Law Enforcement with identifying subjects wanted for questioning in criminal investigations. Identity Theft and related crimes like credit card fraud have plagued society for a number of years and most citizens know of someone, or they themselves have been victims of Identity Theft. Visitors to IDThisPerson.com who can identify subjects, and help reduce their own chances of becoming a victim of Identity Theft, can remain 100% anonymous. IDThisPerson.com and Law Enforcement do not need to know who you are; we need to know who you know. IDThisPerson.com does not collect the data submitted by users; it merely forwards it to the Law Enforcement agency that submitted the image.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH forges bonds among area residents. It helps reduce neighborhood crimes and creates a partnership between law enforcement and the community.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH fights the isolation that crime both creates and feeds upon. Neighbors working together in cooperation with law enforcement makes the best crime fighting team around!
Any community resident can join a Neighborhood Watch; young or old, single or married, renter or homeowner. Members can learn how to make their homes more secure, watch out for each other and the neighborhood, and report suspicious activities to the Police Department. You can form a Neighborhood Watch group for any area: a street, mobile home park, apartment complex, marina, community recreation center, or park.
Neighborhood Watch groups are not vigilantes. They are extra eyes and ears for reporting crime and helping neighbors. Neighborhood Watch builds pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address community needs. Citizen involvement is essential to combat this social crisis.

VineLink "Victims and other concerned citizens can register to be notified by phone, email, text message (SMS) or TTY device when an offender's custody status changes." "Please sign up for notifications at www.vinelink.com."
"If you have an American flag that is no longer fit for display and you don't know how to properly dispose of it, please drop it off to Chief Roehlk at the front desk of Village Hall. Chief Roehlk will take them to the Marine Corps League three times per year."
"If you have any old cell phones, please drop them off at the front desk of Village Hall. They will be donated to an organization that wipes all the memory allowing only the Emergency 911 feature to remain. The phones are then distributed to battered women in need of emergency communications with law enforcement. Chargers are appreciated but boxes, manuals and other accessories are not needed."
No Tobacco Products for anyone under age 18!
Kids can't buy 'em here! The Round Lake Heights Police Department participates in the Kids Can't Buy 'Em Here program hosted by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission. The continuous grant provides funds to monitor tobacco sales and conduct compliance checks at local businesses that sell tobacco products. We have participated in this program since 2004.
We are pleased to report that there have been no violations and are proud of our businesses that take this matter seriously and ask for ID on tobacco sales within the State guidelines and individual store policy.
