 SUPPORT UKRAINE/DONATE NOW 

The Arlington Heights Police Department recently completed enforcement activities relating to IDOT’s designated Christmas – New Year’s Holiday Enforcement Campaign. The campaign began December 17, 2012 and ended January 01, 2013. During the campaign, six 4-hour DUI Roving Saturation Patrols were conducted. The primary focus was to identify and apprehend motorists who chose to drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, without using their safety belts, or were committing licensing, equipment or other miscellaneous Illinois Vehicle Code traffic violations.

Enforcement activities resulted in the following cumulative arrests and citations:

1 = Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Arrest
1 = Possession of a Controlled Substance Arrest
2 = Driving While License Expired Arrests
17 = Speeding Violations
13 = Other Miscellaneous Traffic Violations

The Arlington Heights Police Department is committed to traffic safety and will continue to be an active participant in IDOT’s grant program by participating in the St. Patrick’s Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” holiday enforcement campaign in March.
