Please see the below statement from District 118 regarding a report being investigated by Island Lake Police Department. “Dear District 118 Families, The Island Lake Police Department has notified us of a “suspicious activity” report that was filed earlier today by a concerned parent. The reported suspicious behavior had some similarities to the incident that was shared with you last week. It was reported that an older white man with disheveled hair and beard watched two children playing in a front yard from inside a gold work van with ladders on it. This vehicle differed from the one reported from last week as that vehicle was a gold sedan. The parent reported that when she attempted to take a picture of the individual with her cell phone, he drove off. Once again, we would like to remind all parents to talk to your children about the importance of not talking or responding to strangers, accepting candy or gifts from strangers, or entering the car of a stranger. Also, please report any suspicious behavior to the police immediately by calling 911. Our Transportation Department continues to be extra vigilant for suspicious behavior as they drive students to and from school. Thank you, Daniel J. Coles, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools”

On Halloween, and Every Day, Impaired Driving is Scary Island Lake Police Department is Cracking Down on Drunk Drivers (Island Lake, IL) – This Halloween, Island Lake Police Department is cracking down on impaired drivers with an aggressive Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement effort and is giving a fair warning to holiday revelers: Keep the party off the road. “On Halloween, we urge you to beware of impaired driving,” said Anthony Sciarrone, Chief of Police. “Driving impaired by alcohol or drugs is deadly, it is illegal and it will get you pulled over and arrested this Halloween.” According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates, more than 300 people were killed in alcohol-impaired motor vehicle crashes in each of the last three years in Illinois. In 2014, 302 people lost their lives in crashes involving at least one driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above. In 2015, that number rose slightly to 315 and remained the same in 2016. Just one DUI arrest could cost an estimated $18,000 or more and result in revoked driving privileges for up to a year. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign urges everyone to follow these simple tips to help keep our roads safe during Halloween: • Plan a safe way to get home before you attend a party. • Designate a sober driver, take public transportation, use your favorite ride-sharing service, or call a sober friend or family member to get home. • Walking while impaired can be just as dangerous as driving impaired. Designate a sober friend to walk you home. • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact local law enforcement as soon as it is safe to do so. • If you see an impaired person about to drive, take their keys and help them get home safely. The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 15, 2017 2017 Click It or Ticket Island Lake Law Enforcement Showing Zero Tolerance for Seat Belt Violations May 15-May 30 [Island Lake, IL]—As summer kicks off and travel increases, Island Lake Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. The national seat-belt enforcement campaign will take place May 15 through May 30, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year. Click It or Ticket enforces seat-belt and car-seat use to keep all motorists safe. “Our law enforcement personnel see firsthand the loss of life when people refuse to buckle up,” said Chief of Police Anthony Sciarrone. “It’s such a simple thing, and it should be an automatic response when you get into a vehicle. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the summer vacation season ramps up, we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to stay safe in the unfortunate event of a crash.” The most recent crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 43 percent of passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2015 were unrestrained. That percentage increases to 57 percent when just looking at crashes that occur between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. That’s why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement. Participating law enforcement agencies will be taking a no-excuses approach, writing citations day and night. Motorists caught not buckled up will be ticketed, and those caught driving impaired will be arrested. “Please help us spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed as a result of this senseless inaction,” said Chief Sciarrone. Seat belts save lives, and every vehicle occupant—front seat and back, child and adult—needs to remember to buckle up, every trip, every time. Together, we can make zero fatalities a reality in Illinois.” For more information on the Click It or Ticket mobilization, visit buckleupillinois.org.
