Burbank Police Department News

Last night, while on patrol, Burbank Police Officers working gang and crime suppression stopped a vehicle and discovered a large quantity of drugs, prescription medications possessed unlawfully, and stolen credit cards. The two occupants in the vehicle were associated with criminal street gangs and have prior arrests for identity theft and narcotics-related offenses. Both suspects were placed under arrest and booked for fraud and possessing narcotics for sale.

Throwback Thursday to the basement of Burbank City Hall, which used to serve as the Burbank City Jail. Today, the bars and jail cells still exist and are used for storage. If these walls could talk! The ramp seen in one of the photos was used by patrol cars as they were transporting prisoners for booking.

It's Tax season, which means scams and fraud attempts are on the rise. Make sure you don't fall prey to fake I.R.S. calls and other fraudulent communications that might appear authentic. Read more here: http://bit.ly/2omHrIH

Throwback Thursday to 1984 when the Olympic Torch came through Burbank, California. Good luck to all of the athletes competing in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games!

Last week, the Burbank Police Department welcomed its newest Reserve Police Officer. Officer Rettig was sworn-in after graduating from Reserve Police Academy Class #139. Officer Rettig is a martial artist and is excited about serving the community in patrol. Congrats! Note: A previous version of this post incorrectly identified Officer Rettig as the first female Reserve Police Officer in Burbank. We were reminded, thanks to our followers, of several previous female reserve officers who proudly served the City of Burbank.

Last night, this Honda Civic was caught driving twice the speed limit on Victory Boulevard near the Burbank/North Hollywood border. The driver was stopped and placed under arrest for reckless driving and had his vehicle impounded. To put things into persective, the stopping distance at 70 MPH is about 315 feet, not to mention the time it takes to percieve and react to an obstacle in the roadway. The majority of roadways in the City of Burbank are designated as 35-40 MPH zones, with the exception of residential streets and school zones, which are 25 MPH unless otherwise posted. Please think before driving at a speed that clearly demonstrates a disregard for the safety of the public and our community. Perhaps violators don't follow our social media, but maybe their friends do. If you know drivers who push the limit, tag them, share these, whatever you need to do to help us spread the word and increase safety on our roads.

This past weekend, our Joint Air Support Unit with the Glendale Police Department was patrolling the skies over the Burbank hillside community due to recent complaints of reckless driving, speeding and other vehicle code violations that pose a risk to public safety. Just before midnight on January 27, 2018, Glendale Police Tactical Flight Officers saw a silver sedan doing several circular burnouts in the Castaway Restaurant parking lot. The Tactical Flight Officers followed the car as it left the area, directing a patrol unit to conduct a traffic stop in the 1200 block of Harvard Road. Police Officers identified the driver as a minor and placed him under arrest for reckless driving in an off-street parking facility. The vehicle, a 2017 INFINITI Q50, was impounded. The next time someone chooses to jeopardize the safety of the public by driving recklessly, look up --- we're watching.

Congrats to our Explorers who graduated from the LASD Explorer Academy class #99. 👮🏼🙌🏻

These photos were taken by Burbank Police Officers yesterday in Montecito, California. They're a reminder of the importance of following evacuation orders. With more rain expected, remember you may not have time to react and mudslides like these may prevent or delay rescue personnel from reaching you.

Happy FRIDAY! Here's a great event taking place TONIGHT at Story Tavern in Downtown Burbank. The Story Tavern Triathlon is a fundraiser benefiting our community and the Burbank Police Foundation. Come out and enjoy the festivities, competition, great food and drinks!

This morning, several Burbank Police Officers deployed to Montecito, California along with other local agencies under a mutual aid operation. Officers are protecting evacuated neighborhoods against theft and looting and escorting emergency response crews in and out of the area. The devastation in the area is unthinkable, but a reality for many. We are honored to be a part of this operation.
