Why you may not receive a message?

If a person utilizes cell phones, voice over IP or any other type of service not associated with normal landline telephone service, their phone will not be in the database. If a business has multiple telephone numbers associated with their business they may not be contacted. A privacy manager service will defeat the system. If you are uncertain or desire additional numbers to be notified, you can select the Smart911 link on the Palos Park Police Department web page.
