i've lived in glendale heights for the past 15 years and things have definetly taken a turn for the worst. There are more minorities which unfortunately, just my observations have brought up the crime rate. Specially the apartments right next to Black Hawk Elementary school. My wife was driving down the small street in front of the school and a gangster jumped on top of her car with a knife. Luckily she pulled back and the guy ran. I no longer feel safe around here anymore. =(

Hi concerned citizen.. i am with you 100%. We have lived in Bloomingdale/Glendale Heights for the past 3 years. Our children go to BlackHawk School. We have had nothing but problems with the school and the staff. The apartment right by the school houses a lot of the students that go to blackhawk. We have had problems with them as well. My 5 year old son was playing in our backyard when we first moved in a few years ago and some unsupervised kid in the neighborhood pulled a knife out and held it up to his neck threating him. I am amazed at the lack of concern for this area. Glendale Heights is really a crummy, dirty, crime ridden area to live in. About 1 year ago, two little girls decided to scratch the entire permimeter of my car for NO REASON. Then lied about doing it to the police. It cost me over $2,000 in damages. Such a shame. Really, somebody needs to do something.

yea, its truly sad my kids went to blackhawk when they were younger and now go to Marquardt Middle School, unfortunately out of all the surrounding suburbs Glendale Heights seems to be deteriorating the most and once again it seems like the younger generation is producing the crime. Parents have to step and do something about it. Plus it seems like our programs intended to prevent young criminals like (Dare) and (GREAT)aren't working and someone should place cops in Glendale Height's most dangerous areas. Be careful around Blackhawk my neighbor was recently jumped by a man with a knife on top of her car when she was driving. Luckily he was caught but i heard it happened to another lady as well.

I've lived in glendale heights for about 10 yrs before i moved to wheaton.at first glendale hts was a good place to live now it's a piece of trash or whatever you would like to call it.The main problems are illegal aliens.they're coming from everywhere.For one thing i moved into wheaton a couple of yrs ago and let me tell you it's a beautiful place.Nice neighbors, parks, houses,and the children are wonderful!I wouldn't think about moving anywhere else.Glendale Heights something has to be done:more churches,police,or just at least try to make the neighborhood look descent.Glendale Hts what a wreck!STAY AWAY

He's not being racist.He's just telling the truth, but he could have at least re-word it.

you always hear things about glendale hts but why?it looks ghetto,disgusting,and so many hatred people left and right.at least when u go to wheaton or other cities u see alot of good people, and the neighbohoods look like u want to move there.Glendale hts on the other hand...Plus the cops are awesome when it comes to doing their job over in bloomingdale and the other cities because i have a friend who is with the police department in bloomingdale.GREAT JOB!!!! In glendale hts u barely see police; do something about it!!We want to see change.

Glendale Heights needs a lot of fixing...those people who are complaining why don't you help out.Be part of the village, or police department, or even write a letter to the mayor.

i agree my husband and i lived in glendale hts for a long time, and we've seen enough; not to live there.we spread the word to everyone and hopefully they see why.Nothing is changing, and if you take a look it's getting overcrowded in g.h. More bad people-less good people. You figure it out folks
