Personnel are dispatched to calls for service by the QuadCom Regional Dispatch Center located in Carpentersville. This center is a 9-1-1 emergency dispatch system which serves 5 police agencies and 4 fire agencies. On average, the Department receives approximately 8,000 calls for service throughout the year. A majority of these calls are non-violent crime which includes traffic enforcement, motor vehicle crashes, thefts, deceptive practice and other forms of fraud.

In addition to the normal law enforcement activities, the Police Department sponsors community-oriented programs including:

  • House Watch
    Residents going out of town for an extended period can register with the Police Department for the House Watch program. Under the program, a police officer will check on your house at least once per night and monitor for suspicious activity.

  • Neighborhood Watch
    This program is designed to educate residents in the principles of crime prevention and awareness and to coordinate the citizen’s efforts to monitor and report any suspicious activity in the neighborhood.

Dog Licensing

Dogs over four months of age must be licensed by the Village within 30 days of moving in. Proof of a valid rabies inoculation is required. A one-year tag is available with a one-year rabies inoculation for $10.00, and a three-year tag is available with a three-year inoculation for $20.00. Dog tags may be purchased at the Police Department or at the Village Hall.


Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting

Residents can report minor traffic violations to the Police Department by completing a Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting Form regarding specific vehicles. Please note the following general guidelines.

  • The Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting Form can be submitted for general traffic concerns, or for specific and/or repeat violations when information on an offending vehicle is available.

  • In cases in which information on an offending vehicle is available, the Police Department may submit a courtesy letter to the registered owner of the vehicle, notifying them of the violation(s) and asking for their compliance with the traffic laws.

  • It is not necessary for the reporting person to provide their contact information.

  • The reporting form should not be used to request emergency assistance or report crimes in progress. In these cases dial 9-1-1.

Text to 911 Now Available

As of March 1, 2016, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon customers within the QuadCom 911 service area may be able to use their mobile device to send a text message to 911 for emergency help. (QuadCom serves Barrington Hills, Carpentersville, East Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, South Barrington and West Dundee.)

Texting during an emergency could be helpful if you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability, or if a voice call to 911 might otherwise be dangerous or impossible. But if you are able to make a voice call to 911, and if it is safe to do so, you should always make a voice call to 911 to request emergency response from Police, Fire or Emergency Medical Services.

With either a text or voice call, the first information you should provide is your location, in as clear and premise terms as possible. Do not use abbreviations or slang when communicating with 911.

Telephone Scams

Please be aware of an increase in telephone scams requesting money. Recent reports have been related to claims of money owed to the IRS or claims that a loved one is in danger, arrested or injured.

Any request regarding use of green dot pre-paid credit cards to transfer money should be suspected as a potential scam. Remember to always confirm the claims through a third party before taking any action. Click the PDF below for more information on the "Grandparent Scam" and how to protect yourself.

Please contact the West Dundee Police Department should you suspect you have been a target of such a scam.
