As a resident of the Village of Hodgkins, you can enjoy a safe family oriented community. A combination of the Hodgkins Park District, Library and Elementary School provides many programs aimed at teaching and keeping our children in a safe environment. The Hodgkins Police Department and Pleasantview Fire Protection District are among the top in the State and offer many programs to assist our residents. Hodgkins is a small town with a big heart. Its people are proud, hard-working, and down-to-earth. Though made up of different religions and nationalities, the people who grow up here have a special bond that lasts a lifetime. The townspeople are like a huge extended family. You can sit on your porch on a summer evening and chat with neighbors and friends as they stroll by. Your children can play anywhere in town and you can feel assured that someone you know will be there for them in case they are hurt or in need of help.
