What does a CodeRED message sound like?

The message is normally recorded by a detective. It is a true recorded message and not computer generated. The message will always begin with a statement that This is the City of Palos Heights Police, Fire, City Hall or Public Works department. They will then state if the call is an emergency or non-emergency situation.

The text of the message and further instructions would follow. The messages will generally be brief and if further instructions are necessary, you may be directed to turn to a commercial radio or TV station.
