Chief Dave Gilgenberg of the Burbank Fire Department asks residents to help clear snow and ice from fire hydrants near their home. A clear perimeter of about three feet and a path from the hydrant to the street will allow firefighters to quickly access the hydrant in case of an emergency.
The Chief also asks that during inclement weather, please make sure to check in on your elderly neighbors and those who may have special needs.
The Burbank Police Department would like to remind residents to always lock your vehicle doors. This message comes as a result of approximately 11 Burglary to Motor Vehicle reports since the beginning of December with 9 in the last few days. Unfortunately, we expect that there a even more which have gone unreported. In each of the reported cases, the vehicles showed no signs of forced entry but obvious signs of someone trespassing within the vehicles. The owners had the keys of their vehicles in their possession and believed they left their vehicles unsecured. We have been looking into several leads and have been able to obtain some evidence but believe there are several individuals committing these types of crimes.
By leaving your vehicle unlocked, you are giving those persons an easy opportunity to grab something of value from within a vehicle. Most of these offenders are grabbing loose change or small items (to include id's) they can sell on the street to make a "quick buck," usually for an addiction. These offenders are either walking down the street or walking up driveways lifting door handles. Most of these offenses occurred when the victims were sleeping (overnight hours).
The Burbank Police Department have added officers to supplement the officers already working in response to these incidents. Because these crimes are hard to predict where and when they take place, residents can protect themselves by not keeping anything of value out in the open or within their vehicles. Lock your vehicles (an all your property) to remove the opportunity for the offenders. And if you see something suspicious, please dial 911 so we can respond and check it out.
These types of crimes occur everywhere and in every community, so when you are visiting friends / family, shopping or enjoying the evening out and about, please follow the above rules of thumb. Thank you.
The Burbank Police Department has been made aware of a couple of incidents (Phone Scams) over the past couple of days where an unknown individual(s) has called a resident impersonating a loved one or has stated they are holding a loved one for ransom. Both calls seem to have a Carbondale, Illinois phone number. The phone number belonged to AT&T on a prepaid number. However; in both incidents, the calls seem to be originating from Puerto Rico based on the information this department has received.
In the first incident, the unknown subjects called the resident acting as a loved one in need of immediate financial help. This person then tendered the phone to another individual who proceeded to give directions on how to wire money to another location. The initial conversation did not give the resident enough time to positively identify the person as the relative but because of the "urgency" in the voices of the call, the resident had no reason to believe otherwise.
The other incident involved a resident receiving a phone call claiming to have their juvenile child and was demanding money. The resident asked which child (but did not offer the child's name which ultimately would been used in the scam), the unknown person claimed to be unable to pronounce the child's name. The resident became suspicious, subsequently hung up the phone and made notification to the BPD. The resident's children were discovered safe at school.
These are just two examples of the many scams out there trying to prey on people's emotions and disguising themselves as a loved one. Please be cautious answering your phone and do not be afraid to ask questions to the person. If possible, ask questions to the person claiming to be a loved one that only the loved one would know (name of first pet, what kind of decoration is on the kitchen counter, how many siblings you have, what is the full name of the individual they are claiming to be, or anything else you could think of).
These calls could lose you thousands of dollars if you fall prey!!!
It is unfortunate we live in a society where we have to be worried about answering phone-calls. Most people have voicemail or answering machines. If you do not recognize the phone number, let the call go to your voicemail or answering machine. If it is important enough, your loved one will leave a message. Please share this info with loved ones and explain the dangers of these types of calls out there
If you have been a victim or believe you are being victimized, please either call the non-emergency number (708-924-7300) or dial 911.
Both of these men take pride in the community they serve. They both have shown that their hard work and dedication affect the citizens of Burbank positively.
Both men have gone well above their respective calls for duty as the following shows:
2017 began as a busy period for area law enforcement. Detective Malacina; who is assigned to the South Suburban Major Crime Task Force (otherwise known as a homicide task force), was “called out” to his second activation in the first week of 2017. This activation was a result of a homicide investigation at the Walgreens located at 87th and Kedzie in Evergreen Park on January 5th. Through this investigation, Jon and several other members of the Task Force learned of an offender traveling north by train on the Metra line.
These investigators were able to get the train to stop in Deerfield, Illinois. As Jon and several other investigators began to board the train, gunshots rang out. The offender began firing upon Jon and his fellow investigators. Despite being fired upon, Jon realized there were civilians on the train and showed great restraint in not returning fire and placing the lives of those citizens in further harm. The offender subsequently succumbed to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No investigators or civilians were physically harmed in this incident. While this above incident would ordinarily be reason enough to be recognized, Jon did not stop there.
On the evening of February 7th, the 7-Eleven located at 87th and Central Avenue was prey to a Robbery by three masked offenders claiming to have guns. The vehicle used in this incident was also reported as stolen. Based on his investigative skills, Detective Malacina was able to positively identify 2 of these subjects (who were juveniles). These juveniles were arrested and charged with Aggravated Robbery and Criminal Trespass to Vehicle.
This incident lead to another major investigation Detective Malacina was already working on. This was a multi-jurisdictional auto-theft ring. These investigations lead to the arrest of several individuals by the Burbank, Bridgeview and the Chicago Police Departments. In all, Detective Malacina was able to clear 22 stolen motor vehicle cases from Burbank dating back to late 2016. Several of these cases were connected to incidents in Bridgeview and Chicago (including the vehicle used at the 7-Eleven Robbery).
As if he needed more work to do, Jon assisted the Department’s K9 officer in a narcotics investigation which led to a search warrant being executed on the 7700 block of New England. As a result of this investigation, over 900 grams of cannabis was recovered from the residence in addition to 10 grams of cocaine. It should be noted; most of the cannabis was in the form of “Rice Krispy Marshmallow” treats that was making its way to community kids and teenagers. A 28 year old Burbank resident was charged accordingly.
After the inked dried on all of the previously discussed incidents, Jon then assisted a patrol officer with a subject who was arrested for weapons and narcotics possession. Jon had knowledge this individual was a Burglar and based on this knowledge was able to clear 5 Burglary to Motor Vehicle incidents by obtaining a verbal confession from the offender. It should be noted; the offender was arrested wearing the same clothing and backpack he had on from a burglary he committed days earlier. Video surveillance footage obtained from this incident lead to this discovery and confirmed him to be the offender.
Firefighter Zurek is one of two mechanics on the Fire Department that keeps the fleet of apparatus running and rescue equipment ready to respond to emergencies. His work saves the tax payers of Burbank tens of thousands of dollars every year.
Last month, The Burbank Fire Department was called to the scene of an 88 year old resident who was choking. Upon arrival, Firefighter Zurek found the patient unresponsive and not breathing. He assessed the patient and found that there was food stuck in the patient's throat. Firefighter / Paramedic Zurek was able to act quickly, and skillfully removed the food obstructing the patient's airway. The patient was transported to the hospital for further treatment. Within a few days, the patient made a full recovery. FF/PM Zurek no doubt saved this person's life by his quick actions.
Congratulations to both of these fine men! Both men are hereby commended for JOBS WELL DONE!!!
