Homepage > Premise Alert Program (PAP)

On August 28th 2009, The ILLINOIS PREMISE ALERT PROGRAM (PAP)  (Public Act 96-0788) WAS ENACTED. The PAP allows those with special needs or disabilities, or their guardians, to provide personal information to Public Safety Agencies in the State of Illinois for emergency dissemination to police, fire and EMS personnel.  The information provided to first responders for McHenry County is stored and maintained in our secure database that is provided to first responders, via our computer aided dispatch (CAD) system, prior to their arrival at the scene.

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office has embraced this new safety program designed to enhance our police, fire and rescue services to our residents with special needs. We encourage you to support the PREMISE ALERT PROGRAM (PAP) for McHenry County by completing the PREMISE ALERT PROGRAM NOTIFICATION FORM that will provide your public safety personnel access to vital information regarding physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional disabilities. This information can be provided for residences, businesses or schools within our jurisdiction. We acknowledge that the information provided on this form is confidential and will only be provided to emergency responders.

Please print and complete the form and return or mail it to:


Should you have any questions regarding the PAP program, please feel free to contact our COMMUNICATIONS DIVISION at 815-338-2144 or e-mail us at SHERIFF@MCHENRYCOUNTYIL.GOV
