Commonwealth Edison is the power utility in the Village of Libertyville. Power outages that do not involve an immediate threat to life or property should be reported via ComEd’s telephone reporting system at 1-800-EDISON1 (1-800-334-7661).
Please do not call 9-1-1 or the Police/Fire departments for general outage information. We often do not have any information on the outage, and these calls can detract from our ability to handle emergency calls promptly.
1) Curfew hours - between 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, and - between 11:00 p.m. on Sunday to Thursday, inclusive and 6:00 a.m. on the following day
2) Curfew ages - Illinois state law applies to persons under the age of 17. NOTE: an Illinois driver’s license is not valid during curfew hours for persons under the age of 17. - Libertyville’s Ordinance applies to persons under the age of 18. The laws do not apply to persons who are accompanied by responsible adults at least 18 years of age.
3) Curfew laws apply only in public places. For example, curfew applies to persons in public buildings, walking in public places, or driving their cars on public streets. Curew laws do not apply to persons visiting at a private residence, or those working at an occupation authorized for persons less than 17 years of age by the State of Illinois. Libertyville’s Ordinance does not apply to persons during their participation in school-related activities.
Curfew laws are intended to support the safety and security of young people. Many villages, including Libertyville, have enacted ordinances that are more restrictive than the State’s under-17 law. Among our neighboring communities with curfew ordinances for persons under 18 are Gurnee, Lake Forest, Waukegan, Deerfield and Lake Zurich. Vernon Hills’s ordinance also applies to those under 18, but in limited circumstances.
When a Libertyville 9-1-1 Dispatcher receives a 9-1-1 call, they immediately know where the call was placed from. In addition, the call can quickly be transferred to any nearby public safety agency. If the call is reporting a medical emergency, the dispatcher can give pre-arrival instructions over the phone.For non-emergency calls, please dial our business number, 847-362-8310.
If the call gets disconnected before the dispatcher is able to obtain this information, we will attempt to call you back to continue to obtain information.
Our Consolidated 9-1-1 system is also set up to provide for people who speak foreign languages. We have a direct line to AT&T Language Line personnel that can interpret the callers need for help. This is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
