Palatine Police Department Releases Holiday Traffic Safety Crackdown Results
The Palatine Police Department is dedicated to making our roadways the safest they can be. To strengthen that effort, the Palatine Police Department partnered with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in their Christmas and New Year’s Holiday Traffic Safety Crackdown. Through a traffic safety grant, IDOT supplied funds to increase the number of uniformed Palatine Police officers on the roadways enforcing traffic laws from December 18, 2015 to January 3, 2016. The focus of this campaign was to get intoxicated motorists off the roads and make sure vehicle occupants were kept safe through the enforcement of seat belt use.
