Yes. The siren activation system for Hanover Park is maintained at the DuComm dispatching center and is an outdoor warning system. It may or may not be heard inside a building. An "all clear" tone is not utilized. If you believe you have spotted a funnel cloud, call 911 immediately. At that time, a weather spotter will be assigned to the area to confirm the sighting, and the siren will be activated.

Just as we recognize that conflicts between citizens and agency employees can arise, we also realize that there are times when employees go above and beyond the call of duty. Law Enforcement employees, like everyone else, appreciate it when their good deeds are noticed. Too often they are remembered for the traffic tickets they issue or the arrests they have to make, and not for the thousands of helping hands they extend.
If an officer or employee of this department provides services that you feel they should be commended for, please write the Chief a letter or note to that effect, giving your feelings on what the officer or employee has done that deserves commendation. The Chief will see that it gets to the employee and that a copy is placed in the employee’s personnel file. This boosts their morale and encourages them and all other officers and employees of the department to be more positive about themselves and the service they provide. We are proud of the good relationship we share with the community. You can submit them online or mail them to:

Note: A steady tone may change in volume as the siren rotates to and away from the listener as the sirens are mounted on rotating platforms.
In the event of activation of either of these warning signals, residents should move to a place of safety and monitor radio and television stations for additional information including the danger has passed. Please note that there is no siren activation to indicate the danger has passed.
Note: The wavering tone will rapidly change as the siren rotates. The steady tone should not be mistaken with the wavering tone. If you hear a wavering siren tone lasting three to five minutes, this is the attack warning signal. The attack warning signal means that an actual attack or missile launch against the United States has been detected and that protective action should be taken immediately. Per federal guidance, "this signal will be used for no other purpose and will have no other meaning."
The outdoor warning system is tested monthly in accordance with State and Federal regulations. During this test, the sirens are activated for a brief period of time on the first Tuesday of each month, shortly after 10 a.m. To ensure the safety of Hanover Park residents, the Village maintains a siren monitoring system that exceeds State and Federal requirements. This system tests the ability of each siren to respond to an activation command. The monitoring system checks each siren daily to ensure the siren is operating properly, without actually activating the siren.
The Village is reminding residents of the ordinance regulating the posting of political signs. No permits are required to post political signs. However, signs that violate Village Ordinance will be removed and disposed of by Village personnel.
Village ordinance requires that political signs may not exceed six feet per side of each sign. Signs can not total more than thirty-six square feet per lot. Signs shall be posted on private property with consent of the owner.
Village Ordinance prohibits the posting of signs on in the following locations:
Any questions about sign regulations should by directed to Code Enforcement Dan Hoffman at email@example.com or 630-823-5565.
