Schaumburg, Il – Schaumburg police officers have installed an expanded safety program for this 4th of July holiday. With extra coverage on the street, and using social media, the department aims to prevent citizen injuries and accidents related to 4th of July celebrations. The village wishes to provide residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the upcoming holiday in a safe manner.
Beginning Saturday June 29th and running nightly through Saturday July 6th, additional officers will be assigned to traffic safety enforcement patrols. Their primary objectives will be to enforce violations of drunk driving and failure to wear a seatbelt. Both violations could result in serious injury accidents.
During the evening of July 4th, four additional officers will be assigned to patrol and respond to fireworks complaints. The department will employ a zero-tolerance approach to illegal fireworks.
The police departments Community Relations Unit will begin a social media campaign aimed at topics related to traffic and fireworks safety, including a new public service announcement video that will live on the Village’s Facebook page and YouTube. Several varied messages will be shared with the community daily on Facebook (Village of Schaumburg) and Twitter (@SchaumburgIL).
The men and women of the Schaumburg Police Department are working to ensure a happy, healthy, and safe holiday week.
