Please note that prepayment is not available if the officer checked the “Must Appear” box at the bottom of the Municipal Citation. In this case, the hearing information is included to the right of the “Must Appear” box, and you must appear at the hearing or be subject to a $750 fine.
Anyone wishing to make a complaint against a police department employee is encouraged to speak to the on-duty supervisor, either by visiting the police department or by calling (708) 748-4701. Often times, misunderstandings of policy or minor issues can be successfully resolved by the on-duty supervisor. However, we recognize that sometimes a person may not want to visit the police department or speak with the on-duty supervisor. Should that be the case, formal complaint forms are located in the lobby of the police department and can also be downloaded here. Completed forms may be emailed to citizencomplaint@parkforest-IL.gov, dropped off at the front desk of the police department, or mailed to:
Park Forest Police Department
