The Gurnee Police Department -- in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police -- has awarded 18 individuals with "Saved by the Safety Belt" awards. Award recipients survived serious car crashes in Gurnee during 2012. In part, the kudos are to boost awareness of the lifesaving value of safety belts through public recognition of individuals who survived traffic crashes because they were properly buckled up. A brief award ceremony is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at police headquarters. Mayor Kristina Kovarik and Police Chief Kevin Woodside will present the awards.
