Safe Haven

 

The police department had taken an active role in promoting awareness of the Illinois Newborn Infant Protection Act, also known as the "Safe Haven" law by displaying a "Safe Haven" sign at the entrance to the police department. The sign identifies a "safe haven" location that is staffed 24/7.
 
Illinois law designates the police department as a safe haven where a newborn can be handed to police personnel anonymously, no questions asked, and without fear of prosecution. The purpose of this program is to save the lives of newborns that might otherwise be unsafely abandoned. The program was instituted in 2007 and to date, no babies have been brought to the station.
