The Lombard Police Department is committed to providing residents and motorists with ongoing traffic enforcement and education to promote safe driving practices.

Lombard Police Department win second place for the Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge

Lombard Police were recently presented a second place award for the Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge, hosted by Illinois Police Chiefs Association, in the 66-100 sworn officers division. The award compares municipalities of similar size and their enforcement and educational efforts related to traffic safety. Departments are required to submit a written presentation documenting their efforts throughout the year to actively enforce traffic laws and to educate the public on the laws.

This program encompasses all traffic enforcement but has a focus on occupant protection, speeding, and impaired driving. Lombard rated high in several areas, including: IDOT grant (Drive Sober Get Pulled Over) results; DUI enforcement, distracted driving enforcement, and occupant restraint enforcement; high school outreach programs; driver’s education presentations; and Speed Awareness Day results.

Lombard Awarded Full STEP Grant Funding Request
The Lombard Police Department was recently notified that they were awarded a grant request for FY2017-2018. The Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program, or S.T.E.P., is performance based and was approved in the full amount of $77,648.19, due to Lombard’s ongoing record of success of safe driving enforcement and educational efforts. This is Lombard’s second consecutive year winning the full amount of the S.T.E.P grant requested. In 2016, the same grant funded extra enforcement during strategic times of year and specific locations, resulting in 1,109 traffic stops, 70 arrests including 20 DUI’s, and 827 traffic citations. The grant will allow for Lombard Police to maintain a high level of enforcement pertaining to occupant restraint violations, distracted driving violations, and impaired driving, therefore reducing the number of injuries and fatalities that result.

Back to School Safety Campaign
Lombard Police have partnered with AAA to promote safe driving habits as children return to school. In addition to increased school zone enforcement, a temporary magnet has been added to squad cars to remind residents that schools are back in session and to drive safe, especially in school zones and around buses. Additional reminders are available under news items at Please find photos attached.
Please reach out to Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at (630)620-5718 or with any questions.
