The Lock It or Lose It program has proven that people who take these simple precautions actually help dramatically reduce vehicular burglaries in their communities. Watch this video to see just how fast you can lose your valuable belongings when a car is left unlocked.

Winter Snow Removal and Salting Operations are a Priority

Winter is officially here, and the Des Plaines Public Works Department is working hard to keep public roadways accessible for vehicles and pedestrians. Snow plowing and salt operations are always made easier with the cooperation and patience of our community members. When shoveling, please place snow on parkways, leaving the street free for plow trucks. For snowfalls over two inches, vehicles must be parked away from snow routes until snow removal operations are completed. Click here to become familiar with all the snow routes in Des Plaines.
