Carol Stream Police Department Volunteers
The Heart of the Community
History of the Volunteer Program Development
The Carol Stream Police Department began its volunteer program in 1997. The program was initiated as a means of integrating the community policing philosophy in the department. Sgt. Pat Quinn (ret.) of the Community Problem Oriented Policing (CPOP) Unit was sent to Tempe, AZ to gather information on the town's community policing model, as they were one of the pioneers in community policing at the time.

Water Conservation Challenge
One of the core services the Village Provides is the water that comes into our homes. While many believe that there is an unlimited supply of clean drinking water, only two and half percent of the earths surface water is safe to drink. We have been invited to compete in the upcoming Mayors Water Conservation Challenge, hosted by the Wyland Foundation. In addition to providing water conservation resources, the foundation will award hundreds of valuable prizes to the city with the highest percentage of water customers that make an online pledge of water conservation.
This is where you come in: Beginning Friday April 1st and continuing the month of April, water customers can make their conservation pledges at www.mywaterpledge.com. It is my hope that every one of our water customers, whether a home or business owner, an apartment resident or a school, civic or religious institution join in on this competition
Several residents have recently inquired about the health threat posed by the recent spread of the mosquito-transmitted ZIKA virus being reported in Central and South America. The Village is working closely with both the DuPage County Health Department and Clarke Environmental, the Village's mosquito control contractor to stay apprised of any developments that arise regarding the virus's threat to our nation's public health.
Village Removes Money from IMET
