In response to numerous thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles, Skokie police will give away alarms that act as a deterrent to this type of crime. Signup for the giveaway goes through Oct. 1, with the giveaway slated for Oct. 16 at the Skokie Police Department, 7300 Niles Center Road. As many as 100 will be given away. People who are selected will be notified by email about the time on Oct. 16 that they can pick up the alarms. In the event there are more requests for alarms than alarms available, the giveaways will be prioritized to people with the most-targeted makes and models of cars, as well as for residents who must park their cars in lots, in the driveway or on the street, said Sgt.
