Child Safety Seats 

    Keeping Kids Safe in Vehicles: Top 10 Tips:
  1. Infants must always be placed in rear-facing seats until they are at least one year old and 20 lbs. However it is recommended they stay rear facing until age 2. If less than a year old and more than 20 lbs., be sure they ride in a seat approved for heavier babies and continue to ride rear-facing until at least one year old. Children may ride rear-facing in many seats up to 35 lbs.
  2. Remember: Never place a rear-facing infant seat in front of an active passenger air bag.
  3. Once children are forward-facing, they should ride in a forward-facing seat (toddler seat) until they reach approximately 40 lbs..
  4. All children who have outgrown child safety seats should be properly restrained in booster seats until at least 8 years old and are 4'9" tall.
  5. Old/used child safety seats should not be used unless you are certain they have never been in a crash and you have all the parts (including instructions). Seats six years or older should be discarded and never used. To check if your safety seat has been recalled, log on to
  6. Always read both the vehicle owner's manual and the instructions that come with the child safety seat.
  7. Kids of all ages are safest when properly restrained in the back seat. It is recommended that all children under age 13 ride in the back.
  8. It's important to remember that the "best" child safety seat is the one that correctly fits the child, the vehicle, and is used correctly every time.
  9. Get your child safety seats checked!

Round Lake Heights Police Department Neighborhood Watch
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH forges bonds among area residents. It helps reduce neighborhood crimes and creates a partnership between law enforcement and the community.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH fights the isolation that crime both creates and feeds upon. Neighbors working together in cooperation with law enforcement makes the best crime fighting team around!

Any community resident can join a Neighborhood Watch; young or old, single or married, renter or homeowner. Members can learn how to make their homes more secure, watch out for each other and the neighborhood, and report suspicious activities to the Police Department.
You can form a Neighborhood Watch group for any area: a street, mobile home park, apartment complex, marina, community recreation center, or park.
Neighborhood Watch groups are not vigilantes. They are extra eyes and ears for reporting crime and helping neighbors. Neighborhood Watch builds pride and serves as a springboard for efforts that address community needs. Citizen involvement is essential to combat this social crisis.

  • Contact the Police Department for assistance in training residents in home security and reporting crime.
  • Select a block captain who will be responsible for organizing meetings and relaying information to group members.
  • Encourage participation and commitment among residents and neighbors. Make a special effort to involve the elderly.
  • If you are interested in becoming a block captain, call the Police Department's Community Division Unit for additional information.
  • Someone screaming or shouting for help, or being forced into a vehicle
  • Someone looking into windows or parked cars
  • Property being taken out of closed businesses or houses where no one is at home
  • Vehicles cruising aimlessly
  • Someone spraying graffiti on buildings
  • Strangers sitting in a car, stopping to talk to kids
  • Abandoned vehicles, suspicious people, unusual noises
  • A sudden change in a neighbor's routine: newspapers piling up; drapes drawn; mailbox overflowing with mail, etc
For more information or for assistance in starting a Neighborhood Watch program in your neighborhood, please contact Sergeant Scott Crawford at (847) 546-9704 ext 308 or
