Premise Alert Program
Maintaining Information on Individuals with Special Needs
The Illinois Premise Alert Program (PAP) Act was signed into law by Governor Quinn on August 28, 2009. This act requires public safety agencies with computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems to provide a venue for maintaining information on individuals with special needs within their coverage area.
The Police Department’s 9-1-1 center has maintained such a database since 1996. The systems provides informational alerts to first responders of special needs individuals within the community. In an effort to better utilize the current premise alert system, the Police Department is requesting that residents and business owners in Highland Park, who employ or reside with individuals with special needs, complete an informational form that will be used to create and maintain an up-to-date database. All information will be kept confidential and used only to provide police, fire and medical personnel with necessary information to handle emergencies and situations that involve a special needs individual. Information will be updated every two years.
