Look what we found on the Old Plank Road Trail today. We hope it isn't a sign. Don't worry, this little guy was recovered by his family. #gocubsgo

Did you know the railroad does not just own the train tracks, but also 15 feet on each side of the tracks? If you use train tracks for a short cut, not only is it dangerous, but you are also trespassing. #stayoffstayawaystayalive #ILrailsafety

Our cadets were recognized at the Village Board meeting this past Tuesday night for their achievements at 2017 Illinois Explorer Conference. We are not only proud of our cadet's performance at the state competition; we are also proud of their dedication and service to our community throughout the entire year.

This little girl brightened every officer's day at Frankfort's Fall Festival. She gave each officer a St. Michael's medal "to help keep us safe". We were so touched by the gesture and this young girl's heart for police officers.❤️

Please be mindful of Fall Fest Parking Restrictions in the downtown area. Most restrictions start Friday afternoon and run through Monday evening. The parade kicks off on Sunday at 1pm. The parade route (highlighted in pink) is marked No Parking on Sunday starting at 8am. If you are parked within the area encompassing the parade route, you will not be able to leave that area with your vehicle until the parade concludes. Lastly, we do not want to ticket or tow vehicles. We only do so as a last resort. Please look around and check for the No Parking signs. Do not think you just found the greatest Fall Fest parking spot ever. Most of the tickets we write during Fall Fest are due to a vehicle parking to close to the stop sign, crosswalk or blocking a sidewalk. These areas need to be clear for other drivers to see and turn, including emergency vehicles. Have a happy and safe fest!

Back to School Safety Going back to school is an adjustment for the entire community. It affects the children, parents, teachers and other drivers. With the new school year beginning, the Frankfort Police Department is dedicated to keeping our children safe, especially in school zone areas. We will be monitoring school zones to ensure the student’s safety. Whether you are a newer driver or have been driving for years, please review the following safety tips. If you have a question about any of these tips or laws, please call us at (815) 469-9435 or ask an officer when you see us around town. School Zone Driving Safety Tips • Be on the lookout for school zone signals and ALWAYS obey the speed limits. • When entering a school zone, be sure to slow down and obey all traffic laws. School zones are observed from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. • Always stop for school busses that are loading or unloading children. • Watch out for school crossing guards and obey their signals. • Be aware of and watch out for children near schools, bus stops, sidewalks, in the streets, in school parking lots, etc. • Never pass other vehicles while driving in a school zone. • Never change lanes while driving in a school zone. • Never make U-Turns while driving in a school zone. • Never text while driving in a school zone. • Avoid using a cell phone, unless it is completely hands-free, while driving in a school zone.
