Antioch Police Response Update
In an effort to reduce the potential exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19) by police first responders, the Antioch Police Department will temporarily be adjusting response procedures.
Antioch Police Officers will only be responding in person to high-priority and emergency calls including, but not limited to, vehicle crashes, burglaries, domestic and non-domestic disturbances, and all other crimes against persons.
To file a report or complaint that is of a non-emergency nature, the public is asked to continue to call the non-emergency line at (847) 395-8585. The telecommunicator will take the required information and an officer will contact you as soon as possible via telephone to handle the call for service. A similar procedure will be utilized for those who attempt to make in-person reports in the west-lobby of the police department. In situations, where a complainant does not have access to a phone, an officer will respond in a traditional manner. Examples of non-emergency calls include, but are not limited to, low-value theft reports, damage to property, informational calls, and ordinance violations.
The community is reminded to call 9-1-1 in an emergency for an immediate police response.
As a temporary measure, the following services are being suspended in our attempt to follow social distancing guidelines for first responders as published by the Center for Disease Control:
- Department tours
- Public Fingerprinting
- Vehicle lockouts (unless there is a person or pet locked inside the vehicle)
- Prescription Drug Disposal Collection
Antioch Police Offices continue to patrol the Village around the clock, and while response procedures are temporality being changed, we remain fully committed to maintaining uninterrupted essential police services to the Village.
The members of the Antioch Police Department thank you for your support and cooperation during these unprecedented times.
