Halloween Necklace Program

This program has officers walking the neighborhoods of the Village passing out glow-in-the-dark necklaces to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. The necklaces allow drivers to see the children easier and creates a positive interaction between the officers and the community. Members of the Willowbrook Police Department pass out over 1,000 necklaces every year.

Since this program's inception, a number of other municipalities have copied the program. It has been very successful and citizens' support and comments from the parents have always been positive.
