Block Watch

The Block Watch program is a voluntary program that asks property owners who have outdoor surveillance cameras to register their cameras with the Police Department.  If a crime occurs in the neighborhood the Morton Grove Police Department may ask you to check your camera system to see if you captured a picture that may aid in our investigation.  Police personnel will only ask to view footage relating to a specific criminal act for use as evidence to aid in ongoing investigations.
