Village Facilities Public Access Restricted

Due to the resurgence of COVID-19 in November and the CDC's guidance as it relates to social distancing, all Village of West Dundee facilities are currently restricted from public access. This decision will be re-evaluated when our region (Region 8) is moved back to Tier 2 Mitigations. Village Facilities will remain closed at least until Monday, January 18, 2021.

Village staff is still working regular hours, either from home or in limited numbers on site, and are available to provide assistance via phone or email. General correspondence can be directed to villagehall@wdundee.org, and will be routed to the appropriate individual or department.

Drop boxes for correspondence to the Village and/or water bills payments are located on the exterior of each of the Village buildings. At this point time, we would strongly recommend that routine items or needs be deferred, if possible. The Village staff will continue to provide building permits as needed, but will do so via email and/or fax.

WDPD Policy Review - "8 Can't Wait"

Based on recent news events and societal and social media concerns regarding Police law enforcement efforts and use of force tactics, the Village of West Dundee Police Department (WDPD) has reviewed its adherence to the “8 Can’t Wait” standards, as identified by the non-profit organization Campaign Zero.

Through its review, the WDPD demonstrated its continued advocacy for improved, equitable, non-biased and non-violent interactions in service to the Dundee community.

The WDPD recognizes and acknowledges that many of the existing standards and use of force policies identified by Campaign Zero were put into practice within the department over 20 years ago. Upon this most recent review, it was noted that no changes to the existing policies were necessary at this time. The PDF linked below provides an overview of the 8 Can’t Wait evaluation.

The WDPD will continue to strive for 100% compliance with the 6 Pillars of Dedication – Accountability, Respect, Integrity, Courage and Honor – while continuing to serve the West Dundee community.
