On Saturday, June 3rd, Law Enforcement agencies, BROADVIEW PD, BELLWOOD PD, FOREST PARK PD, HILLSIDE PD, MAYWOOD PD and WESTCHESTER PD will be teaming up for the Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
To prepare and have everything we need for the event, the agencies are seeking monetary or in-kind donations of any amount to offset the costs for the event.
Items needed as in-kind donations are: water (bottled and gallons), fruit (clementines, bananas), healthy snacks (granola bars), small cups (for runners to grab throughout the route).
Monetary donations will go towards the purchase of Torch Run T-Shirts and lunch celebration for the participants after the event.
If you would like to make a donation for any one of our participating agencies, please use this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScX7Q6Wu9s9zXUkwiJv0x3w2OCH-x0_C_jlrxYCnygTUKn9dg/viewform
We (and the Special Olympics of Illinois) appreciate and thank you for your kind support!
See you on June 3rd!

The Forest Park Police Department takes part in the Cook County MEDS Disposal Initiative. If you have expired, unused or unwanted prescription or over-the-counter medications, you can bring them to the Forest Park Police Department located at 517 Desplaines Ave, Forest Park, IL. Police department staff will dispose of the medication in a secure receptacle that is emptied regularly by staff from the Cook County Sheriff’s Police. More information can be found at: https://cookcountymeds.org/.
Colder temperatures also bring the chance of snow. In the event of 2 inches of snow or more, the Village’s snow routes automatically go into effect. Snow routes signs are typically located on the side of the street with the streetlights. There is no parking in the snow routes. If you must park on the street, you must park opposite the snow route. Main streets will be plowed first, followed by side streets. Alleys and sidewalks will be plowed once the streets have been completed. Only streets will be salted. Snow routes will be in effect for up to 48 hours following this snow event.
Cars parked in the snow routes during snow events are subject to being ticketed and towed. Please help us get the word out by telling your guests and neighbors about the snow routes so everyone can be prepared for the upcoming Winter Snow Season. We appreciate your help!
Please call 708-366-7272 or click here to obtain a parking pass. Passes are accepted between the hours of 8 PM & 2 AM. Only five passes can be issued per month. You will need the license plate number, make of vehicle and where the vehicle is parked.
Snow routes are in effect whenever there is two or more inches of snow on the ground. No vehicles can be left in a snow route when it is applicable. Additionally, roll off dumpsters cannot park in a snow route between December and March at any time. Please call the Parking Division if you have any questions.
