Commander Jim Gandy (630) 530-3050
Elmhurst Police Announce Upcoming Traffic Enforcement Period
The Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long traffic enforcement grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), which is providing funds for additional enforcement of DUI, seatbelt, and distracted driving laws. This grant allows extra officers to be on patrol looking for impaired drivers, seatbelt violations, and distracted drivers with a goal of saving lives by reducing fatal and serious injury crashes. 

Extra officers will be on duty starting May 19th and continuing through the Memorial Day weekend. The majority of this extra enforcement will take place during the overnight hours, statistically the most dangerous time to be out on the roads. Motorists are encouraged to drive safely and always buckle up. Anyone planning on drinking should make alternate travel arrangements or appoint a designated driver. Motorists are also encouraged to contact police if they see a vehicle that appears to be driven by an intoxicated driver.

This enforcement campaign is supported through federal funds administered by IDOT.
