Emergency Response Planning: Update the Village’s Emergency Joint Response Plan as part of ongoing efforts to ensure public safety and facilitate collaboration and coordination in the event of an emergency.

Body-worn Cameras: Test, evaluate, and implement a body-worn camera system for police personnel to better safeguard officers, the Village, and the public. Prior to implementation, ensure the program will adequately address policy concerns, FOIA requirements, redaction, evidence procedures, data storage, and retention.

Community Relations and Policing: Work with leaders in the community to formulate a new Chief’s Advisory Committee. Committee members will be from diverse backgrounds and may be selected from applicants who are part of the Mayor’s Talent Bank, as well as business leaders and other interested residents. The committee will meet quarterly to discuss current events and police operations to provide insight and input on best practices and community needs.

Administrative Adjudication: Implement a system to provide for the administrative adjudication of non-vehicular violations of certain sections of the Municipal Code, including but not limited to Business and License Regulations; Health and Sanitation; Building Regulations; Police Regulations; Misdemeanors; the Lincolnshire Zoning Ordinance; Sign Control; Tree Preservation & Landscaping; and other ordinances of the village. The administrative adjudication process will allow individuals an opportunity to contest parking tickets and compliance tickets written by the Police Department as well tickets issued by the Village for specific Code enforcement violations.
