Dear Neighbor,

After a winter filled with several freezings and thawings, we can only assume that the spring will bring even more unpredictable weather, as it is the time of the year with the most hazardous weather conditions. Please take some time to review the information in this issue of Berwyn WATCH to keep you and your family prepared and protected if severe weather should strike.

The warmer temperatures also mean that there will be more people walking along the streets of Berwyn in the coming weeks. Most of them will be meeting with friends and neighbors, going to and from work or school, or shopping and dining in our business districts; but some, however, will be trying to blend into the background in order to commit crimes. Can you tell the difference? What makes a person’s actions “suspicious”? When should you reach out to the police? The answers to all these questions and more can be found on pages eight and nine, as we explore, “What is Suspicious Activity?”

Lastly, the Berwyn Police and Fire Departments have teamed up for the next “Prevention through Education” presentation, which will be held on Thursday, April 25th, at 7PM in the Community Room of the Berwyn Police Department (6401 W. 31st Street). Representatives from the Cook County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force will show parents the current dangers affecting our youth on their computers, tablets and phones; and the Berwyn Fire Department will be sharing a presentation on fire safety and prevention.

May you and your family enjoy a safe and mild spring, and I look forward to seeing you at the “Prevention through Education” presentation in April!


Mayor Robert J. Lovero
