Community Reminder

Oak Lawn and surrounding communities have seen a surge in burglary to autos recently. 95% of those reported in Oak Lawn have been to unlocked vehicles where change, computers and easily carried away items are left in vehicles. Please remember to lock your vehicles and if you are leaving the vehicle outside remember to take your garage remote with you. Report suspicious subjects to police. Follow Oak Lawn PD on Twitter at @Oaklawnpd for community and traffic alerts.

As an Alarm / Security System user, an annual permit is required.

All alarm users are required to submit an alarm user information form.  This addresses alarms connected directly to Oak Lawn's Communication Center, a private monitoring firm, a proprietary central station or any other structure where an installed alarm system is capable of sounding an alarm throughout the building via the activation of a single device.

TERM:  April 1 through March 31

FEE:  $25 / AFTER NOV 1 RATE $12.50

TRANSFERABLE:  NO

CONTACT:  Alarm Annual Registration Permit Coordinator at (708) 499-7837. 

IMPORTANT:  Operation of an unlicensed alarm system may subject you to penalties including fines of up to $500.

False Alarms

False alarms place the lives and property of community members in jeopardy.  While police and firefighters are responding to alarms that turn out to be false, they are less likely available to respond to alarms that are valid.  In addition, the occupants are less likely to believe in their system with repeated false activations.

The Village of Oak Lawn encourages community members to research the proper usage of their alarm systems through manuals or by consulting their alarm dealers.
