The Buffalo Grove Police Department would like to invite you to join us for the first of our Monthly Meetings, June 10th 7:00 pm – 9:00pm at the Buffalo Grove Police Station. Each month we will briefly discuss what has been happening around Buffalo Grove and the surrounding areas followed by a presentation on a law enforcement related topic. In June we will be talking about the illegal drugs in the Chicago suburbs. We will have an investigator talk about what types of drugs are most prevalent, where they are coming from and their street values. The Chief Deputy Lake County Coroner will be present to discuss trends concerning overdoses that are occurring in the area. The meeting will conclude with a presentation about Buffalo Grove Police Department’s Narcan program and our effort to prevent overdoses.

Several officers will be present before, during and after the presentation for any questions that you have about this topic or anything else that might be on your mind.

We understand that everyone has a very busy schedule, therefore we designed the Monthly Meetings so that you can attend as often as you would like, with no commitment to be here every month. The July 8th presentation will be on Identity Theft, and August 12th we will have a presentation by the Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Laboratory (NIRCL). NIRCL provides forensic services to over 35 member law enforcement agencies in the area.

This is a great way to see what is going on in your community, and a perfect opportunity to get to know some of the officers on your police department. If you have any questions or requests for a specific topic, feel free to contact me. Officer Thomas Derken (847) 459-2589

Hope to see you at one or all of the meetings!
