News Releases

The Wilmette Police Department communicates information in many ways:  the Wilmette Village website, the Wilmette E-news, Social Media, the Wilmette Village cable television, the Wilmette Communicator publication, and various media outlets (when appropriate).

The Wilmette Police Department also uses the Village of Wilmette’s E-news. Part of this publication includes a special Police Crime Alert component to share information with residents.  To register, click here and select Police Crime Alerts under the “your interests” section of the registration.

Readers are reminded that an arrest by the police does not constitute a finding of guilt and that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
