Smart911-Winnetka Alert is a free service that allows individuals and businesses to sign up for notifications to be sent via email, text, or voice message from the village, county, and state authorities. This new alert system will help the Village and first responders communicate real time information on situations involving emergencies, weather, traffic, and other critical incident information. Registration for Smart911-Winnetka Alert is required.
“Individuals who create a Safety Profile will be better prepared in all towns and counties across the country that support Smart911,” said Chief Marc Hornstein, “The Safety Profile travels with you and the additional information provided allows us to send the right response teams faster.”

How good are the locks on your doors and windows? Does your shrubbery hide doorways or windows? Is your outdoor lighting adequate to discourage a would-be burglar from targeting your home?
The Winnetka Police Department Crime Prevention Unit offers free security surveys to assist you with answering these questions. Upon request, an officer will conduct a survey of your home and make recommendations on how to make the building more secure and reduce the opportunity of becoming the victim of a crime. For more information or to schedule a survey, please contact Sergeant James Harrison at 847-716-3404.
