Lemont Moving Forward Into Phase 3  

Over the past few months, many people found creative ways to continue with life while sheltering-in-place.  Many of us had to deal with not celebrating birthdays or other events as we had in the past.  Finding a "new normal" with not being able to gather and practicing social distancing presented numerous challenges.  During this time, the Lemont Police Department had the honor of participating in over forty parades to help make the birthdays of local children a little more special.  

As we now enter Phase 3 of the "Restore Illinois" plan, gatherings of groups with ten or less people from different households will be permitted.  Children will again be able to celebrate with some friends, albeit a small group, but a celebration non the less.  Due to this fact, the Lemont Police Department will no longer be honoring requests for birthdays after May 31st. 

We enjoyed participating in your celebrations, and look forward to moving toward a safe and less restrictive phase as summer approaches.  We want to remind everyone to please follow the new rules for being in public places and to have a safe, healthy, happy summer!
