The Island Lake Police Department is joining in this national effort along with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the Illinois State Police (ISP), and local law enforcement agencies across the state to save more lives by strongly enforcing seat belt and impaired driving laws during this July 4th holiday. Officers will be actively looking for drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts and impaired drivers starting June 25, 2018 through July 8, 2018 This is a "Day & Night" enforcement program. Seat belts save lives!

Be aware!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 16, 2018 2018 Click It or Ticket Island Lake Law Enforcement Showing Zero Tolerance for Seat Belt Violations May 18-29 [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 18 through 29, 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 Anthony Sciarrone. “It’s such a simple and effective way to protect yourself while traveling. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to stay safe in the unfortunate event of a crash.” Illinois has a 93.8% observed seat belt usage rate, but a disproportionate number of fatalities involve unbelted motorists and passengers. Of the 1093 traffic deaths in 2017, where restraint use was known, 54% of those killed were not wearing seat belts. Seat belt use drops even more in the evening hours between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. That’s why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement. Island Lake Police Department 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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Date: March 20, 2018 The Island Lake Police Department Announces St. Patrick’s Day ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Enforcement Results (Island Lake, IL) – The Island Lake Police Department today announced it made ZERO DUI arrests during the recent St. Patrick’s Day safety enforcement effort and issued 7 seat belt citations, all of which occurred during daytime hours. “Because of the efforts of our community leaders to spread the word about drunk driving, the streets were a little safer during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday,” said Chief Anthony Sciarrone. “Keeping drunk drivers off the roads saves lives.” The Island Lake Police Department joined forces with other state and local law enforcement and highway safety partners in the Illinois St. Patrick’s Day crackdown. The law enforcement campaign was funded by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation as part of the statewide Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over and Click It or Ticket campaigns.

NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 12, 2018 This St. Patrick’s Day, Don’t Rely on the Luck o’ the Irish (Island Lake, IL) – The Island Lake Police Department today announced it will conduct special patrols this St. Patrick’s Day to crack down on drunk drivers and encourage people to wear their seat belts. Widely celebrated across the country, St. Patrick’s Day is 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 each of those deaths is preventable. “We’re urging our community’s residents and guests to plan ahead for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations,” said Chief Anthony Sciarrone. “If you’re going to drink, designate a sober driver before you go out. Remember: It’s not just about you. There are other people on the roads who want to get where they are going safely.” Designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk are two easy ways to avoid a tragic crash or an arrest for drunk driving. Following are some additional tips. If you’re going out for St. Patrick’s Day: • Designate a sober driver ahead of time and give that person your car keys. • If you don’t have a designated driver, call a cab, use ride-sharing, have a sober friend or family member pick you up or stay where you are and sleep it off. • Never let a friend leave your sight if you think they’re about to drive after drinking. • Buckle up – it’s your best defense in a crash. Pedestrians are at risk, too. If you are walking, keep an eye out for cars. Even a sober driver is a risk if you are drinking and walking. Designated drivers: Be alert for impaired walkers who may not obey street signs and pedestrian signals. The Illinois St. Patrick’s Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign is funded by federal highway safety funds administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
