Illinois Locksmith Safety
CHICAGO - The Administration announced today that it is taking a series of steps designed to protect Illinoisans when they need to hire a locksmith.  The Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), which regulates locksmiths, has noted a growing number of unlicensed locksmith complaints and has discovered that any identifiable address for these unlicensed businesses is sometimes located in another state, and that the phone number that customers may call is, in fact, a phone switch answered in another city or state.
