Our Mission Is Your Safety

The primary mission of government is public safety. In Franklin Park, we take that charge seriously. We have a highly-trained and well-equipped police department who works tirelessly to keep our families safe and our neighborhoods secure. Our Fire Department continues to be on the cutting edge of emergency procedures, as well as utilizing state-of-the-art equipment to enhance rescue and response efforts. Prevention and community participation are the keys to genuine public safety.

Our successful Neighborhood Watch program was designed to help residents learn ways to safeguard their homes and how to recognize and report suspicious activity. We rely on residents to be aware of what is happening in our community and to work directly with our police officers to prevent and solve crime. Our next Neighborhood Watch meeting will be held on March 22 and will focus on several topics including how to recognize and report scams including door-door solicitations which often target our senior citizens. We will also discuss parking issues in the Village and code enforcement. Attendees will also receive and update on school safety.

As always, our Police Chief will be available to answer questions. I urge you to attend this informative session which will highlight information about how to keep our families and our property safe. These meetings are an excellent way to become more involved with assisting our police officers in continuing to make Franklin Park a safe community.
