Community Programs

House Watch Program
The Flossmoor Police Department House Watch Program allows residents who are leaving town on business or vacation to notify the Police Department and request additional patrols. Officers will periodically conduct security checks of the residence, which includes ensuring all exterior doors are locked, and there has been no apparent damage or entry into the home.

Although this is not a guarantee that your home will not be damaged or burglarized, it gives you some added protection. We encourage you to make arrangements with a family member, friend, or neighbor to also check on your home. Patrol Officers are not responsible for picking up the mail, newspapers, or deliveries. 
 
This program is not only specific to residents who are going out of town but is also used by victims of crimes. There are times in which additional patrol security is needed after a resident has been a victim of crime or has the potential to become a victim.

D.A.R.E.
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is a cooperative program between schools, parents, and law enforcement. D.A. R. E. recognizes the intense pressures facing today's youth. This program focuses on building skills to increase resistance to these pressures.D.A.R.E. officers are specially trained to educate children and are knowledgeable about the issues of peer pressure, drugs, and violence.

The D.A.R.E. program opens the lines of communication and promotes positive relationships between parents, schools, and law enforcement. It gives youth the opportunity to see police officers in a helping role rather than an enforcement role.
