Police and Security Services
Public Safety Patrol (847) 404-6272
Mettawa patrols the village throughout the week. This resident service is provided in addition to the coverage provided by the Lake County Sheriff's department. The Mettawa Security vehicle is easily identifiable by the Mettawa Public Safety logo visible on the white pick-up truck. If you would like to have your house checked while you are out our town, please contact Mettawa Public Safety for this service.
Mettawa is dedicated to the protection and security of all residents and, in partnership with the Lake County Sheriff's department, to providing quality public safety services.
Lake County Sheriff's Department
The Village has an emergency services agreement with the Lake County Sheriff's Department. Calls made to 911 will result in a response from the Sheriff's Department. The Department also responds to automatic alarms, traffic accidents and crime incidents in our residential and commercial areas. While the Sheriff's Deputies do not provide routine patrol in the Village, they are nearby serving the unincorporated areas in southeast Lake County.

Mettawa Security Reminders
Please click here to download a copy of the Mettawa Security Reminder publication.
Illinois Governor Quinn signed legislation that took effect January 1, 2012, making it illegal to put electronics in your weekly garbage collection. Therefore a special arrangement has been made with LAKES DISPOSAL to make collections on the 1st Friday of each month for electronics.
Please call 847-366-8582 to schedule an electronics pick-up; approved items include:
Garbage is collected weekly. Village wide garbage and recycling pickup and recycling occur on Fridays. Garbage should be out by Thursday evening or Friday morning and the bins should be removed from the curb by the evening of collection. If your garbage is ever missed or you have questions about service, contact Lake Disposable at 847-366-8582.
There is no collection on national holidays. When collection falls on one of these holidays, collections are delayed by one day.

Snow and Ice Control
Mettawa salts and plows all Village owned roads so that residents can travel safely and easily during the winter months when driving tends to be most hazardous.
The implementation of one of several plowing scenarios is determined by the amount of snow and ice forecast and the duration of the storm. The goal is to have all areas plowed in a timely manner so that residents and business owners are not delayed in their travels.
