Traffic safety continues to be one of the police department’s top priorities. Our commitment to traffic safety led the department to apply for a grant offered by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT); the Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP). The STEP grant provides funding for the selective enforcement of speeding, seatbelt, and child restraint violations. The Park Ridge Police Department was awarded the grant and will have extra officers out between November 12th and November 25th. The additional officers will be assigned each day for the purpose of enforcing violations of the Illinois Primary Seatbelt law, Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act and impaired driving.
