Orland Square Mall Announces Youth Supervisory Program


ORLAND PARK, Ill. - Orland Square Mall announced the implementation of a youth supervision program that will begin on March 12. The policy is one that mimics policies adopted by almost every other shopping mall in the region.

“Orland Park is the safest mall in the Chicagoland region as it has been for many years," said Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau. “In the last four years, the Village collaborated with Simon Properties to ensure that it remains so and that all shoppers enjoy a safe and family-friendly experience when shopping at Orland Square Mall.”

Under the new policy, all visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied at all times by a parent or adult, age 21 or older, after 3 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“This new program is in direct response to resident feedback we have provided to Orland Square Mall,” said Orland Park Police Chief Joe Mitchell. “The community will surely benefit from this enhanced family-friendly initiative made possible by the strong partnership that has been established between the Village and Simon Properties.”

Proof of age will be required for the youth or adult supervisor. Individuals who lack acceptable identification, or do not abide by Orland Square’s Youth Supervision Policy, will be asked to leave the property.

Acceptable identification includes a state-issued driver’s license or ID card, a military ID, a school ID card or a passport. The identification must include a photograph and date of birth. Those without acceptable identification during the designated days and times will be denied entry.

The program is in response to feedback from the community and business leaders, as the center reinforces its commitment to the community to provide a pleasant, family-friendly shopping environment.
