Criminal and Traffic Court
Depending on the geographical location of the offense or violation committed, the Tinley Park Police Department uses two court houses.
Offenses or violations occurring in Cook County utilize the Fifth Municipal District Courthouse
, 10220 S. 76th Ave., Bridgeview.
Offenses or violations occurring in Will County utilize the Will County Courthouse
, 14 Jefferson St., Joliet.
The Tinley Park Police Department has an alternative program, the Peer Jury Program, for juveniles who have contact with the police within the community. The program is conducted by students in eighth to 12th grades. They hear non-violent crimes that are committed within the community by juvenile offenders and determine the type of punishment the juvenile offender receives for their crime.
The benefits of this program are a positive, remedial experience; the avoidance of a court hearing, and the benefit of having the child’s case handled at the station level. The student jurors receive community service hours for their participation. If interested, contact Detective Raymond Violetto at (708) 444-5339.
