The Village of Bourbonnais, a residential and professional office community with a population of 16,000, is located along the banks of the Kankakee River 60 miles south of Chicago. Settled by French Canadian fur traders in the early 19th Century and named for the first settler, Francois Bourbonnais, we were incorporated in 1875.
Designed and implemented for the new Millennium, the uniform shoulder patch celebrates significant symbols of our heritage. The colors are the red, white and blue of our nation’s flag. The 21 stars of the center band signify Illinois, which in 1818 became the 21st State in the Union.
Under each symbol of Government and the Bourbonnais Police banner we are truly “Proud to Serve”.
In Bourbonnais we respect and treasure our past while we plan and prepare for our future. It is our pledge to maintain for future generations the safety, security and quality of life this community has enjoyed for more than 125 years.
Any call originating in Bourbonnais is automatically routed to the Bourbonnais Dispatch Center.
