New Police Service Coming

Byline: Mick Zawislak

A new era of policing is coming to Deer Park, with Lake County sheriff's deputies taking over patrol duties as of Nov. 15.

The Lake County Board on Tuesday overwhelmingly authorized the creation of seven full-time deputy sheriff positions to provide the service.

Just before the 22-1 vote, several board members emphasized the action was for an agreement to provide service and had nothing to do with any issues that may exist between Deer Park and neighboring Kildeer.

"This is no different from any municipality whose leaders come to us and ask for service," said county board member Diana O'Kelly of Mundelein.

The contract calls for 24-hour coverage in the residential area and 17-hour coverage in the commercial areas.

The contract runs through 2014. Terms call for the village to pay the county $149,246 for service to the end of this year, and $232,015 to buy five squad cars to be marked "Deer Park." The cost for police service for 2012 is about $1.2 million.

Deer Park had contracted with Kildeer for police service and was in the fourth year of a contract running until April 30, 2013. Kildeer was to have received $1.45 million this year.

But the Deer Park village board decided to end the contract because it claimed Kildeer had failed to address or correct concerns that had been raised.
