Schaumburg police made four driving under the influence arrests and issued dozens of citations during a St. Patrick's Day campaign March 14-17. The campaign, funded by a state grant, had officers assigned to DUI and seat belt saturation patrol throughout the village. Officers also conducted a DUI safety checkpoint at Meacham and Remington roads. Police say their goal is to reduce injury and fatal motor vehicle crashes, and the officers working these details were hired back on an overtime basis so this did not interfere with normal police operations. Besides the four DUI arrests, officers made two arrests for driving while license suspended and one for possession of cannabis. Citations were issued for speeding (25), seat belt violations (13), insurance violations (12) and other moving and equipment violations (27).
