Be Safe This Halloween

The Momence Police Department would like to ensure that all of our children and trick-or-treaters are safe. Please check the Illinois State Police Sex Offender Registry to educate and prepare yourself as you set out to celebrate Halloween with your little ones.

The Momence Police Department will be conducting complaince checks on the registered sex offenders in our jurisdiction to ensure that they are compliant with all of the laws. Addresses where registered sex offenders reside are prohibited from decorating for Halloween and/or entertaining trick-or-treaters.


The Momence Police Department would like to warn all Momence residents that a door-to-door salesperson purporting to represent a company called Direct Energy has been soliciting Momence residents to sign up for changes in their energy service provider. This representative has been misleading our residents by informing them that the City of Momence has cancelled its contract with our energy service provider, First Energy Solutions. That information is false and misleading; the City of Momence continues to use First Energy Solutions as the provider for our resident's energy services.

Please do not allow this door-to-door solicitor to change your energy service provider unless you fully understand the risks that may be involved. If you have any questions about the City of Momence and our energy service provider, First Energy Solutions you are urged to call Momence City Hall at (815) 472-2001.

The City of Momence requires by ordinance that all door-to-door solicitors operating in the city be registered and have on their person a City of Momence solicitor's badge. If a solicitor approaches you without these credentials, or you are concerned about the legitimacy of the persons intentions, you should immediately call the Momence Police at (815) 472-2021 and use the option to connect with a Kan-Com dispatcher; if your call is an emergency dial 911.

Please share this information with as many Momence residents that you may know.
