Video can also be reviewed with an officer upon request.

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

Unemployment Insurance Fraud Alert

In most of these cases, victims became aware of the fraud when they received correspondence from the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). In other cases the victims became aware when their employers notified them of the fraudulent claim.
