Schaumburg police have an expanded safety program for the Fourth holiday. Nightly from June 29 to July 6, additional officers will be on patrol, looking primarily for drunk drivers and seat belt violators. On July 4, four additional officers will be assigned to patrol and respond to fireworks complaints as the department employs a zero-tolerance approach to illegal fireworks. The Community Relations Unit will begin a social media campaign aimed at traffic and fireworks safety, including a public service video on the village's Facebook page and YouTube account and messages shared daily on Facebook and Twitter (@SchaumburgIL).
