The Police Department provides 24-hour protection for residents, businesses and the thousands of visitors and patrons who support West Dundee’s business community. The West Dundee Police Department takes a proactive approach to law enforcement by using prevention and education as its primary tools.

Personnel are dispatched to calls for service by the QuadCom Regional Dispatch Center located in Carpentersville. This center is a 9-1-1 emergency dispatch system which serves 5 police agencies and 4 fire agencies. On average, the Department receives approximately 8,000 calls for service throughout the year. A majority of these calls are non-violent crime which includes traffic enforcement, motor vehicle crashes, thefts, deceptive practice and other forms of fraud.

In addition to the normal law enforcement activities, the Police Department sponsors several community-oriented programs including:

  • House Watch
    Residents going out of town for an extended period can register with the Police Department for the House Watch program. Under the program, a police officer will check on your house at least once per night and monitor for suspicious activity.

    Police Department House Watch Request

  • Neighborhood Watch
    This program is designed to educate residents in the principles of crime prevention and awareness and to coordinate the citizen’s efforts to monitor and report any suspicious activity in the neighborhood.

  • D.A.R.E.
    Drug Abuse Resistance Education is a program for grade school and middle school children, which teaches them about the harmful effects of drug abuse. D.A.R.E. gives children several methods they can use to resist peer pressure and drug use.

  • Stranger Awareness
    This program is provided to Kindergarteners, First and Second Grade children to help them learn about, identify and teach them to say “no” to strangers.

Dog Licensing

Dogs over four months of age must be licensed by the Village within 30 days of moving in. Proof of a valid rabies inoculation is required. A one-year tag is available with a one-year rabies inoculation for $10.00, and a three-year tag is available with a three-year inoculation for $20.00. Dog tags may be purchased at the Police Department or at the Village Hall.

Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting

Residents can report minor traffic violations to the Police Department by completing a Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting Form regarding specific vehicles. Please note the following general guidelines.

  • The Neighborhood Traffic Violation Reporting Form can be submitted for general traffic concerns, or for specific and/or repeat violations when information on an offending vehicle is available.

  • In cases in which information on an offending vehicle is available, the Police Department may submit a courtesy letter to the registered owner of the vehicle, notifying them of the violation(s) and asking for their compliance with the traffic laws.

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

  • The reporting form should not be used to request emergency assistance or report crimes in progress. In these cases dial 9-1-1.

Telephone Scams

Please be aware of an increase in telephone scams requesting money. Recent reports have been related to claims of money owed to the IRS or claims that a loved one is in danger, arrested or injured.

Any request regarding use of green dot pre-paid credit cards to transfer money should be suspected as a potential scam. Remember to always confirm the claims through a third party before taking any action. Click the PDF below for more information on the "Grandparent Scam" and how to protect yourself.

Please contact the West Dundee Police Department should you suspect you have been a target of such a scam.
