Fondulac Park District Police Department News

The boating season may be over but the work continues getting her ready for next season. New paint and deck surface. This watercraft was obtained several years ago through a military surplus program and had served our community very well.

FOR DRIVERS Make school bus transportation safer for everyone by following these practices: When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch out for children walking or bicycling to school. When driving in neighborhoods with school zones, watch out for young people who may be thinking about getting to school, but may not be thinking of getting there safely. Slow down. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks in neighborhood. Watch for children playing and congregating near bus stops. Be alert. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic. Learn and obey the school bus laws in your State, as well as the "flashing signal light system" that school bus drivers use to alert motorists of pending actions: Yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles. Red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off. Motorists must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop-arm is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again.

As the rest of the nation saw yesterday, a tragedy occurred in Indiana that was absolutely avoidable. 3 children were killed while getting off the school bus. The driver of the pickup was selfish enough to go through the stop arm and flashing lights that killed a 9 yr old and a set of 6yr old twins....please stop for the busses as it only takes a few minutes of your time to save lives....especially if it's YOUR CHILDREN!!

Deer accidents are getting more numerous by the day. Please be ALERT to wooded areas especially near waterways. NEVER swerve to avoid deer. Just apply the brakes hard and keep your wheels straight.

Long day in Havana...Spun a prop hub on our port engine. Special thanks to Ron from Eastport for bringing our trailer to Banner Marsh to come get us....

East Peoria water and Fondulac Park District are replacing a water line on Springfield hill...slow down and be patient

Our department had the opportunity to teach a boating safety and water rescue class to a group of cub scouts this morning. We finished the class with a ride on the police boat...

It is with heavy hearts and prayers to the Florence Co Sheriff’s office and Florence PD in South Carolina with the tragedy that struck their departments....”Later, it was confirmed that seven officers in total, three deputies from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and four officers from the Florence Police Department, were shot.”

Great Job! Officer Piro This is what Community Policing is all about. All this little guy wanted to do was 👋 at a Police Officer. Officer Piro took it one step further and stopped to let this child get into his police car and turn the lights on!

Boating Safety Notice-Tonight, our agency responded to a watercraft that had been caught out in a storm and run aground. Please be aware of your environment and pay attention to the weather forecast and river levels prior to boating on the Illinois River. Pay attention to the channel markers and the river markers so that you know your location in the event you require assistance. And remember, commercial vessels have the right of way and sometimes take several 100 feet to completely stop! Luckily, no one was injured tonight and two people were safety transported back to Eastport Marina.

More training on the river...

Our agency is conducting river rescue training with EPFD on the Illinois River...
