The Village of Morton Grove announced that Smart911 is now available to all individuals. Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals and families to sign up online to provide key information to 9-1-1 call takers during an emergency. Smart911 allows citizens to create a Safety Profile at www.smart911.com for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. When a citizen makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information. Smart911 is currently available in 40 states and more than 1,500 municipalities across the country, and has been credited with positively impacting emergency outcomes. Citizens are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today to have their information immediately available to 9-1-1. Smart911 is private and secure, is only used for emergency responses, and only made available to the 9-1-1 system in the event of an emergency call.
“The resident can provide us with information in advance that they believe is important, which saves time and is more efficient in an emergency when stress levels are high, and communication is important but often difficult.” said Chief of Police Mike Simo

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.
