ORLAND PARK, IL — Orland Square Mall is now implementing a youth supervision program that will require all visitors under 18 to be accompanied by an adult — 21 or older — at all times Fridays and Saturdays after 3 p.m.

The new program will begin on March 12 and is similar to other polices malls in the area have adopted as well. Identification showing the age of a shopper will be required and those who do not have proper identification will be asked to leave the mall. I.D.'s must have a photo and birthdate on it.

Acceptable I.D.'s include:

  • Military I.D.
  • School I.D.
  • Passport.

The Village of Orland Park said the program comes as a response to feedback from the community and business leaders and reinforces the commitment to the community to "provide a pleasant, family-friendly shopping environment."

"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."

“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.”

Orland Square said store employees under 18 can still work within their store during the Youth Supervision Policy hours, but employees under 18 must adhere to the new policy if their shift ends during policy hours.
