Premise Alert Program
Based on legislation passed in the State of Illinois during the latter part of 2009, law enforcement agencies in conjunction with their PSAPs (dispatch services) are to provide residents and others with special needs situations, who are located in their jurisdictions, an opportunity to be enrolled and entered into a Premise Alert Program (PAP) database within the PSAP; an entry that will alert emergency personnel (Police and Fire), when responding to the enrolled persons residence or business location, that there is a specified special needs situation that may be involved.

Red Light Enforcement Information
Red Light Enforcement began in August 2009. The Village of East Dundee began operating a red light enforcement camera at the intersection of Penny Avenue & Higgins Road and Dundee Avenue and Higgins Road. The intersection is identified as "Red Light Photo Enforced" through signage. The Village has three main objectives for implementing the program:
- to reduce the number of injury crashes resulting from right angle and turning collisions.
- reduce the total number of crashes at an intersection overall.
- reduce the number of Red Light Violations at the selected intersections.
Enforcement Citations will be issued to motorists who run red lights without stopping OR fail to come to a complete stop before turning right on red when safe to do so.
Motorists WILL NOT be cited if:
A violation notice form will include information on options that can be chosen.
- The motorist enters an intersection on a green or yellow light which turns red before they have a chance to make a left turn.
- The vehicle was yielding to an emergency vehicle or lawfully participating in a funeral procession.
