A huge THANK YOU to Carol Stream resident Jennifer Rawls for not only coordinating the local restaurants and Lowe's for National Police Week, but for also supporting the officers in our department.

The Fatal Prom demonstration for the students of Glenbard North High School was conducted this week. The students that attended were able to observe a mock fatal crash from start to finish. The Carol Stream Police Department would like to thank Principal Mensik, Assistant Principal Cartwright, Carol Stream Fire Protection District, Office Pini from Hanover Park Police Department, Mary Beth Judy from the Coroner's Office, and GBN Student Actors, that helped make this year's event a success!

We are proud to announce that last Friday, Sergeant Julie Johnson graduated from the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command.

On Wednesday, May 16th at 8:30am, the Carol Stream Police Department in conjunction with the Carol Stream Fire Protection District will stage a DUI fatal crash scene at Glenbard North High School. A crash scene will be stimulated at the high school to help raise student awareness of the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. The Department is dedicated to preventing senseless injuries and deaths related to traffic crashes. We are hoping that this scenario will assist in encouraging Glenbard North High School students to make responsible decisions during prom season and beyond.

Over 25,000 people attended the 30th annual Candle Light Vigil in Washington D.C. last night. to honor law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2017. During the vigil, the names of every slain law enforcement officer who died over the past year were announced. Marked by the tolling of a bell, seven names were read when Illinois was called. The names of 360 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty -- including 129 who paid the ultimate sacrifice in 2017 -- were formally dedicated on the walls of the memorial.

The Rawls Family of Carol Stream has asked that the residents purchase a blue light bulb to honor the men and women in blue. Please take a few moments and read the attached flyer explaining this blue light memorial. Thank you Rawls Family for initiating this expression of gratitude for our police family.

May 13th - May 19th is National Police Week, where we honor those officers that have dedicated their lives to protecting the lives of others. President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation in 1962, which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day. The President also declared the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world gather in Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

At Monday night’s Village Board meeting, Corporal Kurt Schneider and Corporal Jonathan Grey were sworn in as our newest Police Sergeants by Mayor Saverino. Help us congratulate them for this significant career accomplishment!

Spring is in the air! The Carol Stream Police Department would like to remind our residents to register your bicycles. Bicycle registration is FREE and so easy to do. We have made it very simple for the residents of Carol Stream to click on the link below, complete the form and submit. It is that easy! The Carol Stream Police Department will do the rest. If your bike is lost or stolen, and an officer comes across it, we will check the serial number against our computer database. We will know who the proper owner is and return it to you. We recover many unregistered bikes each year and never find their owners. Take a few moments and register your bike! Thanks and be safe!

The Village Board honored Sergeant Harker's retirement with a resolution and he was presented with a plaque for his 26 years of service. Thank you Sgt. Harker!! We wish you the best in your retirement.

April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month, this is an issue that affects us all. Every second your eyes are off the road, is a second your life is on the line. Distracted driving has become an epidemic in Illinois. Illinois was the 12th state to ban the use of hand-held devices while driving. Distracted driving deaths are 100% preventable. Whether it's texting your friend back, changing the radio station, or eating a snack; these all can be put off to a later SAFER time. The only way to slow down this growing epidemic is by everyone doing their part to make the roads safer. If you plan on driving with the phone in one hand, you can expect a ticket in the other.

At the Village Board Meeting on Monday, April 2nd, Chief Sailer received a check for $2,897.81. The money was donated by the generous residents of Carol Stream for the Police Department's Christmas Sharing Program. Residents can donate towards this wonderful cause on the water billing statements. A BIG thanks goes out to the citizens of Carol Stream!!

Last week we joined with the Carol Stream Fire Protection District and conducted a Rescue Task Force training session at Western Trails Elementary School. This training allows EMS personnel to enter a scene quickly, under guard by our officers, to render aid to persons wounded in an active shooter situation. Thank you to Fire Chief Hoff for partnering with us for this cutting edge training. The training was lead by Sergeant Paskevicz and his team.
