Will the Elmhurst Police Department provide extra patrols while I am away on vacation?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of people who go on vacation, the Police Department cannot make special patrols while you are out of town. When you are out of town, it is best to make your house appear lived in. Cancel the newspaper and mail or have somebody pick them up. Leave your lights on timers and leave your itinerary with a trusted neighbor or friend. If a neighbor or friend notices anything amiss at your home while you are gone, tell them to call 9-1-1 and the Elmhurst Police will respond.
