As we start Distracted Driving awareness month, we will be giving you facts why this is such a problem!

Happy Easter! Over the weekend our officers assisted Harvest Bible Churches with their services at the Sears Centre. Officers provided traffic direction and security inside during the event. Over 25,000 people attended these services without a single incident!

To help bring attention to the dangers associated with driving distracted, the Hoffman Estates Police Department, announced today it will again participate in education and enforcement campaigns for the National Safety Council Distracted Driving Awareness Month (April) and Illinois Distracted Driving Awareness Week (April 23-27). Each day, 10 people are killed in distracted driving crashes - contributing to the 37,000 people killed in crashes on U.S. roadways during 2016, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Contrary to what some drivers may think, hands-free, handheld and in-vehicle technologies are not distraction-free, even if a driver’s eyes are on the road and their hands are on the wheel. The latest AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety research found that: • Drivers who text when behind the wheel more than double their odds of being involved in a crash; • Drivers who use in-vehicle technologies, like voice-based and touch screen features, can be distracted for more than 40 seconds when completing tasks like programming navigation or sending a text message. • Removing eyes from the road for just two seconds doubles the risk for a crash. Please help keep the roadways in Hoffman Estates safe.

THANK YOU to all of our Officers who work the night shift!

Don't forget! The passport acceptance fee will increase from $25 to $35 on April 2. This fee will only affect first time applicants or renewals where the passport has been issued more than 15 years ago. If you or a family member are planning travel, you may want to apply or renew before this date to avoid the extra cost. Call the Clerk's Office at 847-781-2625 for additional information.

Spring break is here for many local schools. Please be safe while you travel.

Are YOU ready to make a difference? We are looking for you!! Applications will be available starting April 12th. Any questions about testing can contact Sgt Mueller at 781-2866

The Hoffman Estates Police Department and Explorer Post 806 mourns the loss of Explorer Graham Fath. Graham was killed in a car accident Sunday night. Our hearts are heavy with his family as they grieve.

Make your own good luck this St Patrick’s Day…Plan for a ride home: St Patrick’s Day is celebrated by people of all ages and cultures around the country. St. Patrick’s Day is also one of the deadliest holidays due to the number of drunk drivers on the road. Drunk driving kills more than 10,000 people each year in our country, and every single one of those deaths can be prevented. Today, the Hoffman Estates Police announced it will be conducting special patrols this St. Patrick’s Day to crack down on drunk drivers and distracted driving. There is no luck involved. Just follow these simple steps so you can enjoy a safe St. Patrick’s Day without jeopardizing your life and the lives of others on the road. If you are hosting a party: • Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you serve is involved in an impaired driving crash; • Make sure all of your guests designate a sober driver in advance or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers; • Serve lots of food and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party; If you are attending a St. Patrick’s Day party: • Designate a sober driver before the party begins and give that person your car keys • Use one of many ride share options like Taxi’s, UBER or LYFT • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive while drunk • Always buckle up!

We are expecting some nasty weather later today during rush hour. Drivers forget quickly how to drive safely in the snow. Please give yourself some extra time and use caution tonight!

THANK YOU to the Waterfront Community Church for the great poster after your station tour! We are always happy to show off our home and officers!
