GLENDALE — In the past week, Burbank police officers have booked roughly 40 inmates into the Glendale Police Department jail as construction crews work to repair water damage to their own lockup facilities, officials said.
Burbank police began transporting inmates to the Glendale jail on March 31, where they have been housed with inmates arrested by Glendale officers.
“Glendale has been extremely cooperative and accommodating to our needs,” Burbank Sgt. Carlos Gomez said.
The Burbank Police and Fire headquarters sustained water damage to the jail’s floors and walls after officials said a construction contractor neglected to properly insulate the facilities.
