no solicitor invited  Residents are reminded that solicitors within the Village are not required to have solicitor permits issued by the Village. Over the last several years, court decisions have become very restrictive on the municipalities regarding the requirement of permits for solicitors. The Mount Prospect ordinance changed a couple of years ago to reflect the changing court decisions. As a result, the police department no longer has a permit process. Solicitors are still required to abide by no solicitor notices, which the police department can enforce. In addition, the Village Ordinance restricts the hours for solicitations, particularly during the winter months when darkness falls upon us earlier. Please remember that you are under no obligation to answer the door and speak with any solicitor. If you feel that the solicitation is suspicious in any way or the solicitor will not leave, call 9-1-1 immediately and get us out there to help.

Bottom line is, never let anyone into your home who you did not invite.

Metropolitan Alliance of Police Annual Telephone Solicitation Process  

The Metropolitan Alliance of Police (M.A.P.) is the labor union representing Patrol Officers and Sergeants employed by the Mount Prospect Police Department for collective bargaining and legal representation purposes. Typically, M.A.P. solicits all residents and businesses within Mount Prospect once a year and that time is here. The Mount Prospect Police Department would like to remind residents and business owners within Mount Prospect that solicitations made on behalf of the Metropolitan Alliance of Police are, without exception, made by employees of professional fund raising enterprises and not Mount Prospect police officers or sergeants. No Mount Prospect police officers or sergeants are involved in the practice of soliciting money from residents or businesses over the telephone for any purpose, as this practice is expressly prohibited by department policy. Telephone solicitors working on behalf of M.A.P. who claim to be Mount Prospect police officers are simply misrepresenting themselves.  

Donations requested in the name of M.A.P. fund raising efforts go to support union activities and are not given to the Mount Prospect Police Department. A good way to identify this type of solicitation is when the solicitor offers to send a representative to your home or business to collect your donation. This practice has been common amongst professional fund raising firms used by M.A.P. locally in the past. Solicitors who claim that donated monies directly assist the police department are simply misrepresenting the facts.



FBI Launches Child ID Mobile App
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has launched its first mobile application—the Child ID App. This free mobile app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about one’s children that can be easily provided to authorities if a child goes missing. The app allows users to send information—including pictures or other physical identifiers such as height and weight—to authorities with a few clicks. It also provides tips on keeping children safe and guidance on what to do in the first few crucial hours after a child goes missing. The Child ID App is currently available for use on iPhones and can be downloaded for free from the App Store on iTunes. The FBI is planning to expand the tool to other types of mobile devices in the near future.  FBI Child ID App
