The Police Department will take fingerprints for job applications, a professional license or for immigration purposes for both residents and non-residents of Western Springs or for people who are being fingerprinted because of a business or profession located in Western Springs. Fingerprinting is done on a walk in basis Monday through Friday during regular business hours and a nominal fee may apply. Applicants must provide their own fingerprint cards. For fingerprinting further information, contact the department at 708-246-8540.
The Police Department frequently retrieves lost pets. If a pet has a license, as required by the Village, pet and owner are quickly reunited (owners are assessed a $35 fee for lost pets). Please call the Police non-emergency number, (708) 246-8540, regarding lost pets.
With hundreds of trains passing through the Village each day, railroad safety is a serious concern in Western Springs. Illinois State Law imposes a mandatory $500 fine, or 50 hours of community service, for drivers and pedestrians failing to obey railroad crossing signals—walking or driving under or around lowered guard gates at railroad crossings. Western Springs, like many Chicago-area communities, has multiple, adjacent railroad tracks. A leading cause of railroad fatalities is pedestrians disregarding the lowered railroad gates once one train has passed, and crossing the tracks into the path of a second train.
