The Palos Park Police Department
encourages everyone to utilize the Illinois Secretary of State's
Emergency Contact Database
This database allows Illinois instruction permit, driver's license
and identification card holders to enter their emergency contact
information into a voluntary, secure database, in the event of a
motor vehicle crash or other emergency situation where a person is
unable to communicate directly, law enforcement may access this
database to help them reach the person's designated emergency
If a person holds both an Illinois driver's license or permit and an
Illinois identification card, the emergency contact information can
be entered for both cards in one transaction. The information will
only be associated with the record(s) selected by the participant.
Participants can add, modify, or delete their emergency contact
information at any time by visiting this web page. Any modifications
or deletions will overwrite all previously entered information.
Previously entered emergency contact information will not be
displayed, in order to ensure the privacy and security of the
information. Participants can print the page containing their
emergency contact information upon completion for their records.
Participants may select one or two persons as their emergency
contacts, and are encouraged to share their participation with the
emergency contacts they have chosen.
It is the responsibility of the holder of the driver's license,
instruction permit, temporary visitor's driver's license and/or
identification card to enter accurate data into the required fields,
as well as to update contact data should any data change after
initial enrollment in the emergency contact database.
