The Antioch Police Explorer Post is an interactive program co-sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America designed for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21.
The program teaches the basics of Law Enforcement to those interested in a future career in the Law Enforcement field and allows them to give back to the community by using some of their skills at different events in the Village such as assisting with traffic control during parades and attending Shop with a Cop.
Explorer Post Members regularly perform ride-alongs with various Officers, which further enhances their understanding of Law Enforcement. Many Law Enforcement topics are covered in the program including: traffic stops, traffic accidents, building searches, SWAT tactics, drill & ceremony, evidence collection, and control tactics.
Explorer Post meetings are held every Thursday at 7pm and further training is held on various dates throughout the year.

Planning your next vacation or business trip?

One important step in that process should be to notify the police department that you will be away from home by requesting a vacation house watch. Doing so alerts patrol officers to your home’s unoccupied status so that they may conduct periodic checks of the perimeter and verify that there is nothing unusual occurring on or about your premises. Please note that checks are performed as manpower, call volume, and time constraints permit. This program is meant to enhance existing security measures you should have in place.

In order to receive this service, please download and complete the  Vacation House Watch  and return to the Records Department in person or email to .  If you have any questions or need to amend a submitted request, please call the police department at 847-395-8585.

The Village of Antioch Police Department is proud of their partnership with a sex offender registration and public notification program called OffenderWatch®. Antioch is part of a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies which includes 120 Illinois agencies. The service is a citizen-friendly, easy to use website that enables citizens to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators, which may be in close proximity to their homes, places of work, schools, churches and day care centers.


The information is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is updated in real time by the Village of Antioch Police Department as offender information changes and is reported. As part of this innovative service, citizens may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map and listing of all offenders within a user defined radius (.25 miles out to 2 miles) of that address. Citizens can then register the address to be continuously monitored by the Village of Antioch Police Department, who will send to them an e-mail alerting them if an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address. Citizens may confidentially register as many addresses as they like, at no cost to them.


The purpose of the program is to lessen the anxiety of citizens by proactively alerting them should an offender/predator move within proximity to them, and to provide the highest level of security and safety to all Antioch citizens. The program also enables the police department to verify that offender addresses do not violate any safety buffers that may be implemented around protected institutions in the village, such as schools, day care centers and parks, and helps law enforcement schedule compliance checks for verifying information provided by offenders.
