Important Community Notice from Mayor David Gonzalez

Community Alert

"Good afternoon, this is Mayor David Gonzalez.

The Chicago Heights Police Department is actively monitoring reports from law enforcement agencies in surrounding communities regarding potential looting and disturbances in retail areas. 

I made the decision, with input from the Police Department Command staff, to issue notices to our local retail businesses recommending they close for the safety and well-being of our residents and business community.

I am asking all residents to remain home as a precaution to assist Chicago Heights police officers and other local municipal law enforcement by minimizing vehicle and pedestrian traffic in Chicago Heights and the surrounding  area. 

Please be assured that the Chicago Heights Police department will remain on full alert and will be responding to any issues or concern.

Thank you."
