Laws regarding rental properties and eviction proceedings can be complicated. Most small property owners operate their rental unit as an investment and may not have the background, information, or experience that would assist them in preventing or dealing with problems on their property. The city has had several cases related to rental condos or rental single-family homes where drug sales, criminal gang activity (including Aggravated Assault/Battery) and severe nuisance problems have adversely impacted the quality of life in the neighborhood and the property owner was unaware or unable to quickly or effectively resolve the matter. One has no way of knowing if the next renter will become a nightmare for you and the community. The Crime Free Multi-Housing program can help you be prepared to prevent problems or be ready to quickly and effectively deal with problems should they occur.
The Crime Free Multi-Housing program was developed in 1992 by the Mesa, Arizona Police Department. The International Crime Free Multi-Housing Program have spread to nearly 2,000 cities in 44 U.S. states, 5 Canadian Provinces, Mexico, England, Finland, Japan, Russia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Puerto Rico.The information contained in the seminar is a compilation of experience and proven methods from professional rental property managers, lawyers, and police officers.Seminar topics include:Explanation of the City of Rolling Meadows residential rental ordinanceOverview of community policing and city resources available to assist youExplanation of the Crime Free Lease Addendum with samples providedCPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) overviewCombating Crime ProblemsDealing with Non-ComplianceApplicant Screening (Background Checks)Active Property Management and Working with the PoliceCity of Rolling Meadows rental issues/inspections/miscellaneous ordinancesUSB workbook and additional valuable handouts and resource information
In an effort to provide the rental property owner, agent or manager an opportunity to attend the seminar with the least amount of difficulty, we will offer sessions every month. Seminars are scheduled on Saturdays. Please visit our website http://www.cityrm.org/formcenter/crime-free-registration-10/crime-free-multihousing-seminaronline-57 to register online. If you have any questions contact Program Coordinator Officer Carlos Saez, at 847-878-2449, or email email@example.com .
Not necessarily. If you live out of state, you undoubtedly have a local individual that handles matters for you related to the rental property. With this in mind, the ordinance does state the rental property owner OR agent (manager), shall attend a CFMH seminar.
You (or your agent or designee) need to attend only one seminar regardless of the number of rental units that you own or operate in the city.
No. Thorough applicant screening is recommended and discussed in the seminar, however, the ordinance does not require criminal background checks.
Not necessarily. The ordinance does require the use of a Crime Free Lease Addendum or similar wording in the body of the lease that makes criminal activity a cause for eviction. The ordinance does allow the city to require an eviction based on the severity for one criminal act. It also provides the rental property owner/manager the tool and ability to deal with a problem when needed. The Crime Free Lease Addendum was developed by HUD and is used in section 8 leases utilized by housing authorities. Evictions based on this concept were upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2002 (see Oakland Housing Authority v. Rucker and Department of Housing and Urban Development v. Rucker).
No. The Federal Fair Housing Act, which is discussed during the seminar and contained in the workbook, has seven protected classes. The seven protected classes relate to a persons race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or handicap (disability). A person’s behavior is not a protected class. The ordinance is intended to deal with a tenant’s or tenants friends and associates criminal or excessive nuisance behavior that is impacting the health, safety, or quality of life of a neighborhood regardless of the tenant’s race, ethnic background, or income status. Would you like to live next to a drug dealer, gang member, or renter that has loud and drunken parties every weekend?
A rental property, regardless of size, is in fact a business operation. While the city has the power to declare certain businesses and non-rental residential properties as nuisance, it has the right and responsibility to do the same for troublesome rental properties. The ordinance is designed to provide education and tools to rental property owners that will assist them and empower them to reduce the chances of problems and be prepared to quickly and effectively deal with problem tenants. This will not only assist the city and local neighborhoods, but may also protect the rental property owner from potential loss of rent during a protracted eviction and costly repairs to damaged units.
No. With over 1500 apartments and over 900 single unit rental licenses (condos, single family homes, etc.) it is not possible to track every single incident. However, the units that become excessive in nature by virtue of the type of criminal activity or amount of nuisance activity (as noted in the ordinance) that impacts the quality of life of a neighborhood will be notified. The owners that actively work with the police department in an attempt to resolve the problem should have no concern. The city will not automatically suspend or revoke a rental license for a property that meets the nuisance standard. The city manager, upon specific recommendation, may review the situation and may suspend or recommend revocation for a small percentage of rental property owners who fail to attempt to resolve problems on their property.
YES!!! Crime and drug infested properties around the country have seen dramatic decreases in calls for police service after CFMH was implemented. The City of Rolling Meadows Crime Free Multi-Housing Program was started in 2012. Since then, we have experienced a substantial decrease in calls for police service in 3 of our major rental properties. It is apparent that the efforts of our CFMH program working with rental property managers along with our beat officers and specialty units have been effective. Additionally, there is a push to have several if not all rental apartment communities either certified or becoming certified in the CFMH program. The program solicits the interest of Homeowners Associations to adopt the principals of CFMH in their rules and regulations to deal with the number of rental (non-owner occupied) units in their associations.

A police officer may make an arrest without a warrant if the officer witnesses a crime being committed. Police may also make an arrest without a warrant if there is probable cause that an officer occurred and that the person who would be taken into custody committed the crime. Unless it is an emergency, however, a police officer cannot enter a person's home without a warrant to make an arrest. When a person is arrested, he or she is not necessarily charged with a crime. Some people who are arrested are taken into custody, questioned, possibly put into a lineup, and then released without being charged with an offense.
Here is your chance to start over!When your case is expunged or sealed, it becomes off-limits to everybody except law enforcement agencies. It also means that, when you apply for a job, you don't have to disclose that you have been convicted, arrested or charged.

If you do not know the Officer’s name please provide as much detail as you can on the nature of the incident you were involved in and the description of the officer. Please list the specific actions or demeanor that impressed you. Mention the location, date and time the incident occurred.
You may file a complaint in writing at the Police Department located at 3600 Kirchoff Rd, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008, Illinois law (501ILCS725/3.8(b)), requires that anyone filing a complaintagainst a sworn police officer must have the complaint supported by a sworn affidavit. Therefore, it is the policy of the Rolling Meadows Police Department that citizens will be requested to complete a sworn affidavit in all cases.
You may also file the complaint online at: http://www.cityrm.org/536/Complain-About-Police-Services
Again, if the complaint is against a police officer Illinois law requires that you sign a sworn affidavit alleging the complaint. Therfore, if you file online you MUST respond the next business day to sign the affidavit. If you have questions please contact 847-255-2416 and ask to speak to a supervisor who will assist you.
Another reason is that with shift changes and calls for service, it is not uncommon for officers to be late coming in at the end of their shift, and the officer just starting needs a vehicle available to get out and patrol and handle calls. What many outside of police work are unfamiliar with is that there are a lot of administrative duties that officers must perform which requires them to be at the station. In fact, these administrative duties can make up about a third of a police officers time.
If it is a matter that only requires a question or a concern you are welcome to call the non emergency number at 847-255-2416. All other calls should be directed to 911.
In addition to the Major Case Assistance Team, Rolling Meadows is also a member of the Northern Illinois Police Alarm System which when activated would assist Rolling Meadows in times of disasters or emergencies requiring a large amount of personnel.
Employees can appeal the department’s decision to uphold a complaint and the decision to discipline the employee.
Within the survey you will be given the opportunity to be contacted or only fill out the form. We do request your information as mandatory to keep false surveys from reaching the department.
A police represenative will get back to you based on the communication need you specify. For example, email vs. phone call.
DRIVABLE ACCIDENTS AND NOT INVOLVING ANY INJURY:
Move out of the flow of traffic. If you are involved in a traffic accident and you determine that there are no personal injuries and the vehicles are driveable, please get the vehicles out of the flow of traffic. You do not want another accident involving other passing motorists.Call the Police Department. This depends upon your location. If you do not know whom to call, call 911 and they will assist you.Once a police officer arrives, he or she will be happy to take your traffic accident report. You will be given a case number; this is the report number. You will also be given an (SR1) accident form from the Secretary of State. You are required to fill this form out and mail it to the Secretary of State's Office if there is more than $1500.00 worth of damages on either vehicle. Mail it to the Secretary of State within the next ten days. Don't forget to make yourself a copy of the form before you send it in. Don't wait to make your report; call right away. Even if a report cannot be taken at that time, it is important to notify the proper authorities. When you get home, call your insurance agent and give them the report number and any other information that your have concerning the accident.
NON-DRIVABLE ACCIDENTS OR A PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENT:
Call 911 immediately! If you are involved in a traffic accident that is not drivable or there is personal injury, call or have someone else call 911 immediately. Be sure to give the dispatcher the location of the accident so the Police may be sent out to investigate. If there are injuries, make sure you tell the dispatcher the nature of the injuries and the Fire Department will be notified. Help will be sent.
A HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT:
Don't chase a hit-and-run driver! If you are involved in a traffic accident and the other party involved drives off before you get the driver's name and information, do not pursue the other driver. You do not want to get into a high-speed chase and into another accident.Call 911 immediately! Call 911 immediately and tell the dispatcher that the other driver left the scene. Give the best description possible of the driver, the vehicle type, color, license plate number, and direction of travel. A flash message will be given to the Police in the area over the radio telling them of the wanted driver in your hit-and-run accident. An officer will be sent to the scene to handle your accident report.

A report is not required. You may exchange information and decide among each other if you would like to handle the matter among yourselves. If not call the police and an officer will be dispatched to take the report.
IF BOTH CARS ARE DRIVABLE AND NO INJURIES ARE PRESENT:
You may both drive to the police department and an officer will take your report at the police station.
Traffic Accidents page.
It is unlawful for the driver or owner of any vehicle to park a vehicle on any street between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Exceptions can be made by contacting the 24 hour Police Service Desk at 847-255-2416.
You will be cited for unlawful operation of a wireless device. 625 ILCS 5/12-610.2(b)
The law specifically states that the driver must be using a headset or blue-tooth type device that is usually installed within newer vehicles.
Getting pulled over by a police officer can be intimidating, frustrating, and even dangerous for the motorist and the police officer. However, remembering some simple steps will help make your traffic stop as safe and as pleasant as possible.
The law states that when a police or fire vehicle using emergency lights and/or sirens approaches, drivers must pull over immediately to the right curb and stop. Respond to the red and blue lights and signal your intentions to let the officer and other motorists know what you plan to do. If the roadway is clear and the officer doesn't pass you, assume that your vehicle is the one being pulled over. Once you’ve stopped, roll down your window so that you may hear any verbal directions from the officer instructing you to move to another location he or she deems safer.
Be aware that the violation may have occurred one or two miles before the traffic stop. This delay is due to the fact that most departments have developed strict procedures for officers to follow to ensure your safety and theirs. They are required to give the location, vehicle and occupant description, and license plate to the dispatcher. The officer is also trying to locate the safest place to initiate the stop.
Remain in the vehicle unless the officer instructs otherwise. That is safest for you and the officer. Distracted motorists have been known to leave the roadway and strike vehicles or individuals at a traffic stop, causing injury or even death.
Listen to the officer and comply with instructions. Drivers often assume they are being stopped for a routine traffic matter, but the officer may be stopping you because your vehicle is similar to one just seen leaving the scene of a crime. Additionally, many people have warrants out for their arrest, are mentally unbalanced, or simply don't like police officers. Many officers have experienced verbal and physical confrontations as a result of traffic stops. Consequently, the officer may initially be acting under the assumption that you are a safety threat. Control over the situation can be accomplished by keeping yourself and your passengers in the vehicle with your hands visible.
Generally, the officer will need to converse with only the driver. Have your passengers remain in their seats and quiet unless the officer addresses them directly.
If it's a case of mistaken identity, you'll be on your way as soon as it's cleared up. If it's a traffic stop, the officer will request your driver's license, registration and insurance card. The officer may allow you to explain your actions; if so, you should speak calmly. If the officer saw you commit the violation, your statement may not be necessary.
If your complaint is about the validity of the citation, then it must be handled through the courts. If the contact was unprofessional, complain to the police department. Police departments have procedures for lodging complaints against officers. Departments want to know if there's a problem with an officer.
If you comply with the rationale behind an officer's actions by following these steps, a traffic stop can be a pleasant experience.

If you wish to view your violation please visit: www.redlightviolations.comPlease note: Illinois Law dictates the vehicle MUST come to a complete stop prior to making a right turn on red. In other words, if your vehicles tires DO NOT come to a complete stop (not rolling, slowing before turn without stopping, yielding prior to the turn, etc..) this is the reason you received the citation. Be advised that all of the red light tickets are viewed by a police officer, not a company representative. Therefore, if you did not stop like Illinois law requires this is why you received the citation.
If you decide that you wish to contest the violation you may appear at an adjudication hearing where an Adjudicator will listen to your case and view the video of your violation. All adjudication hearings are held in the City Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of City Hall at 3600 Kirchoff Rd, Rolling Meadows, IL 60008. at 2 pm on the date you received.
If you wish to contest the violation:Individuals wishing to contest may do so by submitting a written Contest by Mail or by requesting an In- Person Hearing.
Please note the following are the ONLY reasons to contest a violation:
Police officer issued you a uniform traffic citation for the same violation within 1/8 of a mile and 15 minutes of the Stop Arm Camera recorded violation. The Police issued citation takes precedence over the violation captured by the system.
Vehicle or license plates were stolen and not recovered at the time of the violation.
The required visual signals were damaged, inoperable, not activated or not presentin the violation image.
If ANY of those reasons apply you may contest the violation.
You should know that these violations are reviewed by a Rolling Meadows Police Officer.
PLEASE NOTE ILLINOIS LAW REQUIRES:
You must stop before meeting or overtaking a school bus on a two-lane roadway. A warningwill be given at least 100 feet (200 feet in rural areas) in advance of a stop. The bus driver willflash amber and red lights on the front and rear of the bus. The stop signal arm will be extendedafter the school bus has come to a complete stop. You must then come to a complete a stop.You must remain stopped until the signal arm is no longer extended and the flashing lights areturned off or the driver signals you to pass. On a four-lane roadway where a bus is stoppedin the opposite directions from which you are traveling, you are not required to stop yourvehicle but you should drive with caution.
