On Halloween, Officers Castro and Eby stopped by the Wheaton Christian Center to join in on the fun for the Hallelujah Night Event. Officer Castro conducted a presentation on bullying, which included about 60 children.

Corporal Chacon presented Officer M. Rudelich with a Honorable Mention for the thorough investigation that he conducted, regarding a domestic battery and the presence of a handgun. The handgun was located and the important information was gathered. The Department is proud of your dedication to not only officer safety, but community safety as well. Thank you for a job well done!

Press Release Results: The Carol Stream Police Department made 4 impaired driving arrests and issued 47 seat belt & child safety seat citations and 26 distracted driving citations during the recent Halloween enforcement effort. Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois participated in this effort to save lives by getting impaired drivers off the roads and more people buckled up. The enforcement crackdown took place from Friday, October 26th, through the early-morning hours of Thursday, November 1st.

Officers Castro and Heck attended a Trunk or Treat event at the Outreach Community Center of Carol Stream. This event was sponsored by the Superb Student Program (SSP). The trunk or "treaters" went from trunk to trunk collecting candy. Vehicles were decorated and prizes were awarded for the Best Decorated vehicle. There was also a costume contest and lots of fun games. So glad that we were able to participate and take part of all the festivities.

Recently, Sergeant Cummings participated in a Sticker Shock Campaign at the Caputo’s Grocery Store in Carol Stream. The Carol Stream Police Department partnered with the DuPage County Prevention Leadership Team (PLT) to “sticker” alcohol beverages within the Caputo’s liquor section. The stickers urged those that purchase the alcohol not to supply the beverages to those who are under 21 and the legal ramifications if they do. Sergeant Cummings and several local high school students helped display information throughout the store. We would like to thank Caputo’s for allowing the PLT to spread this important information.

The Carol Stream Police Department would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween. Trick or treating hours are from 3:00pm - 7:00pm. Some helpful tips to remember while trick or treating: • Look both ways before crossing the street • Do not eat candy without your parent’s permission • Do not eat opened candy • Carry a flashlight or a glow stick • Only visit houses with lights on • Accept treats at the door – do not go inside a stranger’s house • Younger children should walk with an adult • Stay with your friends or in a group • Remind kids to stay out of the street, stay on the sidewalk • Parents keep an eye out and drive safe Have a spook-tacular good time!

It is NHTSAs (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's) - National Teen Driver Safety Week. Our officers are partnered with the Illinois State Police and the Illinois Department of Transportation to conduct a teen driving fair at House of Hope in Chicago. *Parents should review the graduated driver laws with their teen to help them remain safe behind the wheel. *Alcohol/drug influence, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and the number of passengers are all dangerous ways to operate a vehicle, particularly for teens.

Press Release: 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. • Buckle up: It’s your best defense against impaired drivers. The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
