Every community has a set of guidelines in the form of codes and ordinances that regulate how property is to be maintained in order to protect the health, safety, curb appeal, and well-being of residents. By ensuring these standards are met, communities help guarantee quality of life and provide a safe and desirable living and working environment that also enhances property value.
Community Service Officers (CSOs) are non-sworn members of the Wood Dale Police Department that handle non-criminal issues and make being a visible part of the community an integral focus of their duty. CSOs also work to ensure that these community guidelines are being met in order to keep Wood Dale looking its best.
If an issue is reported, CSOs will inspect the location and work with the property owner to ensure that a resolution can be made. These officers work as problem solvers and communicators to help educate owners about community standards, making sure that issues are managed in responsible and effective ways.
If you see an issue, you may report it by calling, (630) 787-3816 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
