drive sober 4th

Lombard Police made 313 driving under the influence arrests in 2017, resulting in the department being named top in the state for DUI arrests based on size.

Lombard was also named sixth in Illinois out of all departments, with 5.49 arrests per sworn officer, according to Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists or AAIM.

The Lombard Police Department remains committed to keeping residents and motorists safe by showing a zero tolerance policy when it comes to intoxicated driving. Throughout the year, Lombard participates in Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It Or Ticket Campaigns for events and holidays including the Superbowl, St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the December holiday season, which also includes New Year’s.

“I’m proud of our department and of our officers who work hard to reach these kinds of numbers,” said Traffic Safety Unit Officer Lt. Joe Grage. “While our arrest numbers are high, we hope that one day we won’t have any impaired drivers to arrest. We’ll continue our efforts and we’ll remind you again, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Lombard!”


Fourth of July Drive Sober Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket Totals

During the 2018 Fourth of July Drive Sober and Click It or Ticket Crackdown, from
June 25 - July 8, the Lombard Police Department made 2 DUI arrests, and issued 36 speeding and 56 cell phone violation tickets. In addition, 58 seat belt violations and 17 child safety seat citations were issued.

In total, Lombard Officers stopped 447 vehicles, with 153 of those stops occurring in a single overnight road side safety checkpoint on July 6.

Extra enforcement efforts are funded by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transportation and are part of the statewide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click It or Ticket” campaigns.
