Turn in Expired or Unused Prescription Drugs and Medications :

Did you know that medicines that are flushed down the toilet can end up polluting our waterways? Returning unwanted medicines to a take back location is the most environmentally protective way to dispose of unused medications and helps to keep us safe. You can bring expired or unwanted prescription drugs in the lobby of the Police Station. Drug drop-off is completely anonymous and available Monday through Friday from 6 AM to 10 PM. For more information call (847) 678-2444. Also, local pharmacies including Walgreen’s and Osco will take back unused prescription drugs or unwanted medications



Conduct Transactions Safely at the Police Station:

Buying and selling over the Internet has become very common, but don’t leave yourself at risk! Providing your home address to unknown persons or completing transactions in an unfamiliar area is a safety concern.

The Franklin Park Police Department recommends conducting the transaction in a safe location. Residents and business owners, who buy and sell on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace or other exchange sites, can transact in the parking lot or lobby areas of the Police Department. The parking lot and lobby areas are monitored by staff and security cameras 24 hours a day and are well-lit in the evening. Also, only accept cash or a cashier’s check for the sale. Personal checks carry some risk.

Watch for Scams

If you receive something in the mail requesting the need to
have a worker conduct an inspection in your home, please
review the information carefully to verify if it is really from
the Village. If you are unsure, please contact the Village at
(847) 678-2444.
As a reminder, residents should always ask for identification
from anyone requesting access to their home. If you are
approached by an individual claiming to be a Village of
Franklin Park employee or a worker from a local utility,
make sure they have proper identification. You can also
check to see that they are driving a clearly marked Village
of Franklin Park or utility company vehicle. If something
seems suspicious or it just doesn’t “feel” right to you, please
call the Franklin Park Police Department at 847-678-2444

Ordinance Amends Overnight Parking Rules

Beginning on July 1, vehicles parked on Village residential streets between the hours of 2 - 6 AM will be required to display a valid Village vehicle sticker, a placard or an overnight parking permit or they will be ticketed. The new parking placard is an option for residents who bring a small business vehicle, that is registered outside of Franklin Park, to their home and need to park it in the Village overnight.

Also beginning on July 1, the Franklin Park Police Station will no longer take requests for overnight parking for guests over the phone. Overnight parking permits will only be available for purchase in person at the Police Station. For more information, call 847-671-8200 or attend the Community Presentation on June 18 at 6:30 at the Police Station. You can learn more about these changes by reading a Village Press Release and the Village's June Newsletter.
