Palos Park Police Department Sets Up Teen Hotline
708-671-3750
No Questions Asked!

Palos Park Police Commissioner Dan Polk has announced that the Palos Park Police Department has set up an Anonymous Teen Hotline, in an effort to reduce the hazards and tragic endings that often occur after teens leave underage drinking parties.

Palos Park teens will be encouraged to call the anonymous hotline to report possible pending  underage parties, where teens may be consuming alcohol and/or drugs and then getting into a vehicle and driving on  our roadways.

Police Chief Joe Miller said, “The goal of the Teen Hotline is simply prevention and a tool to avoid a tragic ending to a night of underage partying.  When you combine alcohol and driving, coupled with young inexperienced drivers, you have a recipe for disaster.” 

The Teen Hotline is meant to simply get teens home safely and avoid a disaster before it occurs.  It is a “no questions asked” option to make parents and police aware of underage parties before the festivities end in a death, injury, arrest of civil/criminal parental Responsibility litigation. 

If a tip comes into the hotline, one designated officer will follow up on the tip, check the validity of it, inform the parents and have patrol staff monitor the area for signs of an underage party.

Teens in Palos Park can trust police to, at the least, get them home safely and offer them an alternative to driving with an intoxicated or impaired friend!
