Important Notice - City of Darien Police Department

Help prevent theft from your vehicle - Don’t be an easy target!

This year, nearly two-thirds of reported thefts from cars in Darien occurred when residents did not lock the doors to their vehicles. Leaving a door unlocked and valuables inside the car encourages criminal behavior in our neighborhoods. Please help the Police Department keep thieves out of Darien by locking your doors and bringing all valuable items such as GPS units, iPods, computers, change jars, wallets and purses with you. Additionally, installing motion detectors outside your home is an effective way to discourage potential burglary.

If you see anyone suspicious that may be involved in these activities, please call 9-1-1 immediately. Thank you for your attention and for helping to keep Darien a Nice and Safe Place to Live.

Smart 911

Smart 911 allows citizens to enter information online that they want to have delivered automatically to the 9-1-1 dispatchers in the event any participant dials 9-1-1. The additional data provided is far more extensive than what is typically available to 9-1-1 dispatchers and helps to improve results when rendering aid to 9-1-1 callers.

"Smart 911 strengthens and expands our current 911 service by providing us with critical information about callers, while enhancing our ability to locate and communicate with them. This will help us provide more information to 9-1-1 call takers, as well as first responders before they arrive on the scene," said DuPage ETSB Chairman Patrick O'Shea. "Knowing why a victim is unable to speak, providing EMS with information about medical conditions, being able to supply a photo of a lost child immediately, will help us to better serve our citizens and save lives."

"We are excited to add DuPage County to the rapidly growing list of leading emergency communication centers across the nation that support Smart 911," said Todd Piett, Chief Product Officer at Rave Mobile Safety. "The team is exceptional, and we look forward to working with them."

Smart 911 provides citizens with the ability to enter information that they want to make available to 9-1-1 call takers through a secure web site at
