School Safety Initiative

The La Grange Park Police Department places a high priority on ensuring school environments within our community are safe, conducive to learning, and free from the kinds of disruptions that negatively impact students’ lives and the educational process. The great relationships we enjoy with students, parents, and school officials are reinforced through the implementation of programs which directly support the social and educational objectives of local schools, including our School Crossing Guard, Adopt-A-Cop, and Spark Plug programs.

Education & Drills

La Grange Park Police Officers of all ranks provide educational presentations regarding pedestrian safety, bike safety, and stranger danger. Safety drills that incorporate emergency response practical exercises are conducted at the beginning of each academic year and officers frequently conduct foot patrols of school facilities and grounds throughout the year.
