Crime Prevention Tips for the Holiday Season

WHEATON, Ill. – Please join us in our shared responsibilities to prevent accidents and crimes.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs remains the No. 1 cause of fatal traffic crashes in Illinois and across our nation. Please use a designated driver, a cab, or public transportation should you consume anything that may impair your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle.

Always lock your home, leave a light on a timer, and have a neighbor retrieve your mail when you will be away from home. Residents are welcome to complete a vacation house watch with the Wheaton Police Department when they will be away from home for more than a few days. Officers will check your home periodically. Vacation house watch requests may be filed in person at the police station or over the internet at

Always remove valuables from the inside of your parked car and keep the car locked, no matter where it is parked.

Keep a watchful eye on your neighborhood. Should you hear or observe anything suspicious, call 9-1-1 immediately. You may choose to remain anonymous. Wheaton police officers will respond to anonymous reports.

Members of the Wheaton Police Department wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

It is our honor “To Protect and To Serve” you.
