Come home to Highland!
HIGHLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT
The town’s Police and Fire departments have become part of Lake County’s Consolidated Dispatching center.
What that means for all residents and business owners is a quick call to 9-1-1 for police services – whether that is for theft reports, suspicious people in your neighborhood, domestic disturbances, loud music, triggered alarms, lost pets or shoplifting.
All calls are routed through the county’s dispatch center, but it will still be a Highland police officer who responds to your call.
We will be one of the few departments in Lake County that remain staffed 24/7. Walk-in traffic is welcome. We can take recovered property, make reports at the station, monitor e-bay/craigslist type transactions in our lobby as well as parental custody transfers.
Because we will be staffed, we will continue answering administrative calls for individuals who wish to speak with an officer, inquire about pending report availability, answer calls and provide dispatch for after-hours concerns for the Public Works Department.
To reach us directly, simply call (219) 838-3184.
We will no longer be answering our (219) 838-3181 line.
Transitioning to a new system is always challenging.
We are here to help. Just give us a call.

BEWARE OF SCAMS
With the onset of spring and the upcoming summer season, Highland Police are reminding citizens of scams where valuables are removed from the home by criminals posing as utility workers for the town.
The scam artists appear with a request to check things inside a residence. All Highland Public Works employees wear badges with their uniforms and drive vehicles marked with the Town of Highland logo.
“If unknown subjects come to your door and you do not recognize them or they do not have proper identification, please call 911 immediately,” Police Chief Pete Hojnicki said “Be aware of suspicious vehicles or subjects and keep an eye out for neighbors, too!”
