Neighborhood Watch


Shiloh Police and many of the Village’s residents have learned that the best protection for one’s home sometimes can lie in the caring eyes of neighbors. The Neighborhood Watch Program emphasizes just that! Several neighborhoods in Shiloh have organized themselves into designated “Neighborhood Watch Blocks”, keeping a careful eye on each others’ homes and properties. Look for Neighborhood Watch signs in your neighborhood, and get involved. Or, start your own neighborhood watch group with the help of our Police Department. The service is free; all you need to do is fill out the required form. This form can be obtained at the Shiloh Village Municipal Building.

Going to be away from you home? Download the Residential Security Check Form, and send it to the Shiloh Police Department via email, U.S. Postal service or in person. To get a neighborhood watch program in your area, contact our department.

The Village of Shiloh has a diverse population with a large military presence that moves from state to state. For new residents moving into Illinois you should visit the Secretary of States Office for the most current Drivers License and Registration information.


The Illinois Secretary of State has implemented changes to comply with the Department of Homeland Security REAL ID Requirements.
