Community Safety Update

There has been much talk in social media about community safety lately and Oak Lawn Police Chief Murray provided Oak Lawn Matters with numbers for burglary from 2011 to 2015.  We wanted to know if burglaries were up, or were we just hearing about them more due to improved communication through social media and Everbridge alerts.

The numbers of reported incidents show that the numbers for burglary, residential burglary and vehicle burglary fluctuate quite a bit from year to year.  In 2015 there were 108 total burglaries reported and 116 vehicle burglaries.  This compares very favorably to 2011 when there were 139 total burglaries and 202 vehicle burglaries. 

The chart below shows the numbers of reported incidents, and reflect “raw numbers” from 2011-2015.   

Community Safety Update 

 

Police Chief Murray explained that numbers fluctuate naturally and they will continue to do so.  The overall trend is stable for Oak Lawn and residents can be assured that there is not a large spike in reported burglaries, despite the increased awareness.  

Residents are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings, know their neighbors and call 911 if anything seems out of the ordinary.  Police can not be everywhere and they really appreciate the calls they are getting.  Many residents hesitate to call 9-1-1 because they are afraid of “bothering” someone.  Police Chief Murray says getting tips from residents is critical and never hesitate to call 9-1-1 if something seems amiss.  

If you have not done so already, please sign yourself and family up for Everbridge Community Alerts.  These alerts are used to give residents the facts they need when they need them.  Signing up is easy.  Simply click this link (also found on the Village of Oak Lawn website main page): https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736723510#/login

Remember, if we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you!
