About this Article

Several Des Plaines police officers are facing suspensions for violating department rules and policies related to "irregularities" with the reporting of hours worked on federally funded traffic safety campaigns, Police Chief William Kushner said Tuesday. "I'm confident that this is it," he said. "I've gone through some other grant files. I've not been able to find anything where I can prove that there were any improprieties."
