At the Village Board of Trustees Meeting on September 20, the Lombard Police Department was recognized for its efforts in promoting safe driving.

Pd safety awardsLombard Officer Recognized with Prestigious Award Officer Andrew Stern was presented with the 2018 Looking Beyond the Belt Award by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, or ILACP. The award is given out to officers who made traffic stops solely for a seat belt violation that results in the discovery, solving or prevention of a crime. Officer Stern was presented the award for a seat belt violation traffic stop he conducted on June 23, 2018. After speaking with the driver, Officer Stern identified a smell of cannabis and performed a field sobriety test, which the driver failed. A subsequent search of the vehicle uncovered a loaded semi-automatic weapon and two loaded magazines. The driver was charged with a DUI, aggravated unlawful use of weaponry and a felony possession of a controlled substance.

“As a result of his efforts, Officer Stern took an armed impaired driver off the road of Lombard, making the streets and community safe for the people who live, work, and travel through Lombard,” said Scott Christensen, law enforcement liaison for the Illinois Department of Transportation and spokesperson for ILACP.

Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police Traffic Safety Challenge
Lombard was presented with the 2nd place award in the municipality division for the second year in a row for the ILACP’s Traffic Safety Challenge. The challenge is a friendly competition between similar size and type of law enforcement agencies and targets three major traffic safety priorities including occupant protection (safety belt and child seat usage), speeding and impaired driving. Winners were recognized for their effectiveness of their overall safety programs and were evaluated for enforcement initiatives, innovative problem solving in their communities, use of public information activities and more.
