General Investigation is made up of operational detectives who investigate a broad category or crime. They normally work from police stations.
The following are the guidelines set forth by Illinois statute in reference to the retention of property by this department:
If you are the victim of a crime and the Bradley Police have taken possession of your property as evidence the following is the procedure to possibly obtain these items prior to the above listed retentions:
Upon final disposition of cases prosecuted by the Kankakee County States Attorney’s office:
Contact the States Attorney’s office and request an evidence Disposal form. Be prepared to provide them with one or more of the following:
Using some or all of this information and if statute allows, you will be issued an evidence release form.
Contact Officer Baxter by phone, in person or via e-mail and provide a copy of the evidence release form as well as your contact information.
Officer Baxter – 815 936 5128 – email@example.com
Officer Baxter will then prepare all necessary local paperwork and comply with any special instructions from the States Attorney’s Office (IE Photos etc). He will then contact you and set up a time and date when the return of the items to you will take place.
If your case was NOT prosecuted by the Kankakee States Attorneys office (IE no suspect, juvenile offender etc).
Please contact the Detective who is working your particular case. They will at times have the authority to release your items.
If this is the case, please provide them with your contact information and they will make arrangements with Officer Baxter to return your items to you.
All Bradley Police Officers are Certified Crime Scene Technicians and are thus able to process most crime scenes they will come across. The Bradley Police also have 2 Illinois State Certified Crime Scene Investigators on staff to assist with more complex scenes.
There are often times when the Bradley Police will process a scene and collect evidence from that scene. Many times these items belong to our victims. Please keep in mind that we will only collect items of evidentiary value and will attempt to obtain only the “best” evidence.
Often these things may seem insignificant at the onset, but could be crucial in linking a suspect to a scene.
Remember….if it just doesn’t feel right…it probably isn’t.
The records component of the Bradley Police Department is responsible for the following:
Fact Sheets and Statements can be filled out at any time, please include case number if one is known.
If you need to sign a complaint against an individual you can complete the Fact sheets or Statement and call to make complaint.
The Village of Bradley Emergency Communications Center is staffed by 10 full time Telecommunicators providing 911 Police and Fire dispatch services to all residences and businesses in the Village. Bradley is one of three PSAP’s (Public Safety Answering Point) in Kankakee County. The other two are Bourbonnais Police, and KanComm, the city/county consolidated center in Kankakee. All three centers are NG-911 (Next Generation 911) ready and are awaiting construction of the statewide emergency services network. Once constructed, NG-911 will allow wireless callers to text 911, or even send video of the emergency situation.
The Village has implemented a dispatcher certification program in conjunction with the Association of Public Safety Officials (APCO) to provide the latest and most comprehensive training and continuing education for our staff. APCO is the world’s largest public safety communications organization. Partnering with APCO will help our Telecommunicators keep pace in an ever changing world of technology and allow us to offer the best possible emergency service communications to the residents and visitors of our community.
Beginning in 2014, we began offering public education to our elementary school children on the proper uses of 911, when and when not to call 911, and how they can help us by knowing what information is needed when calling 911. Our 911 for kids program provides a fun and interactive examples on how 911 works and what to do in an emergency.
