In 1957, Winnetka Police Officer Robert Burke was killed in the line of duty. The Robert E. Burke Memorial Park was officially named after him in 1997. After 20 years of wear and tear, the park sign had deteriorated significantly and was in need of replacement. A local high school student requested permission to refurbish the park as part of his Eagle Scout project, and the upgrades are now complete. Please join us on Saturday, November 11 at 11:00am for a short ceremony to rededicate the Robert E. Burke Memorial Park and remember the sacrifice Officer Burke made for the community.

We're dying our page pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Try to spot all of our pink as you see us in town this October!

Throughout October, you’ll see us sporting a bit of pink on our uniforms in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us have loved ones who have battled breast cancer, and some have been directly impacted by the disease themselves. Members of the Winnetka Police Department will be making a donation at the end of the month to support breast cancer research and prevention. This is a small way we can bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and support the women around us. If even one person sees our pink epaulets and is reminded to schedule their screening, we know we’ve helped make an impact.
