• Community Partner Invitation - EPD's Halloween Extravaganza 2022- Join us!

    Halloween season is here! Elgin Police Department will be hosting our second annual EPD’s Halloween Extravaganza (SAVE THE DATE FLYER ATTACHED). This event will be on Thursday, October 20th at 5:00pm-7:00pm. We are still in the early stages of planning, but we wanted to reach out to our community neighbors and previous supporters to join us and provide our community with great resources. After the official event flyer is finalized, it will be posted and shared on our EPD’s Facebook Page.
