October is both National Crime Prevention Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
If you haven't had the opportunity to visit our Community Relations / Crime Prevention website, please take a moment during October to investigate all of the resources available to you. From learning how to use www.crimereports.com to a home security checklist to cyberbullying, take time to do at least one thing to better protect yourself, your property or to get more informed.
The Elgin Police Department has resources available for domestic violence situations. Please visit our website for more information, including who to contact.
