Public Service With Honor

"See Something Say Something"

Founded in 1982, the Burbank Police Department has grown to a professionally trained, 53 member force.

Additional civilian support personnel include clerical staff, and code enforcement. Full-time sworn officers include: A D.A.R.E. instructor (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) that teaches in our grammar schools, two school resource officers who are active at Reavis High School and Liberty Jr. High, 1 K-9s and their handler, several  fluent language translators speaking (Polish, Spanish, and Arabic), members of a highly-trained emergency response team, and a host of other specially trained officers.

The sharing of information is critical to efficient police/community relations. Our goal is the reduction of crime and, ultimately, the improvement of the quality of life in our community.

The Uniform Crime Reports indicate that Index crimes were down in Burbank over the past years. (Index crimes include murder, criminal sexual assault, aggravated assault/battery, robbery, burglary, theft, arson and auto theft). Working together with our citizens and the business community, we hope to lower these numbers even further.

Community Alert:

The Burbank Police Department is asking that citizens be cognizant of suspicious vehicles and persons in their neighborhood. We ask that if you witness suspicious activity please make note of license plates, vehicle and suspect descriptions. Suspects may vary in age and race. The police department request that if you see something suspicious you should contact 911 with the information as soon as possible.


• Any person under the age of 21 convicted of two or more traffic violations in a 24 month period will receive a minimum one month driver’s license suspension. The suspension length is determined by the seriousness of the offenses and the driver’s prior driving history.

• Any person convicted of street racing will have their driving privileges revoked for a minimum of 12 months. The vehicle may also be impounded for up to five days.

• A parent may view their teen’s (under the age of 18) driving record free through the Secretary of State Website at https://www.ilsos.gov/parentalaccess/

• Any person under the age of 21 who is convicted for a first offense of underage drinking, including the illegal consumption, purchase or possession of alcohol will lose their driving privileges for 6 months. If alcohol is found in a motor vehicle, all passengers could be charged with possession. If supervision is granted for any of these offenses, driving privileges will be suspended for 3 months. Of note: a motor vehicle does not need to be involved in the offense, yet driving privileges will still be suspended.

• Any adult convicted of providing alcohol to a person under the age of 21, may be fined up to $2,500 and given a jail sentence of up to one year, and/or their driving privileges may be suspended under the Illinois Liquor Control Act.

• Any person under the age of 21 who is convicted of DUI for a first offense faces the revocation of driving privileges for a minimum of two years, a fine up to $2,500, a jail sentence up to one year, and participation in a Youthful Intoxicated Driver’s Visitation Program.

• Sexting, or sending a nude picture via a cell phone text, is becoming increasingly more popular amongst children and teens. Currently, under Illinois law, this act constitutes the possession and/or distribution of child pornography, both felonies. If convicted, one could be sent to the penitentiary (or other juvenile facility) and have to register as a sex offender for at least 10 years. Talk to your kids!
