Who should I call to obtain a copy of an accident report?
Requests for police reports should be made in person at the Burr Ridge Police Department. Copies of most accident reports are available upon request. These reports are free to Village Residents and at 18 cents per page to non-residents. Copies of accident reports involving reconstruction of the accident are available at a cost of $25 each after the reconstruction is complete. Copies of accident reports involving crimes or deaths are subject to the rules cited under the Freedom of Information Act (Illinois Compiled Statutes, 5 ILCS 140/1-7). Other types of reports may be obtained by filing a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request. These reports will be released according to the provisions outline in the Act. The cost for these reports is 18 cents per page. The Chief of Police reviews all reports released under the FOIA.

When should I call 9-1-1?
Call 9-1-1 for all medical emergencies, fires, or emergencies.  Call 9-1-1 to report a crime in progress that you are aware, if you observe a crime happening, a crime is committed against you, or you just witnessed a crime. Call 9-1-1 to report suspicious vehicles, persons or activities you have observed. Call 9-1-1 any time you wish to request the presence of a police officer.

What should I do if I hear the tornado siren?
Unless you have an emergency that requires assistance, please do not call 9-1-1 or the non-emergency number to inquire about the sirens. If you hear the sirens then seek proper shelter and listen to your television or radio for updates.
