Bartlett police arrested motorists on charges of driving while license suspended and driving without a valid license during a five-day special enforcement campaign conducted through the St. Patrick's Day weekend, the police department announced Tuesday.
Officers also arrested a juvenile for possession of cannabis, and issued seven warning or traffic citations for speeding violations, two for insurance violations, and 18 for other moving or non-moving violations during the department's participation in the Illinois Department of Transportation's 2014 St. Patrick's Day "Drive to Survive" DUI and seat belt enforcement campaign.
The department conducted 20 hours of specialized traffic enforcement to target seat belt violations, resulting in officers issuing 23 citations for seat belt violations.
The traffic campaign was funded by federal dollars distributed through IDOT's Division of Traffic Safety. The Bartlett Police Department will be participating in the agency's "Drive to Survive" Memorial Day DUI and seat belt enforcement campaigns from Friday, May 9 through Monday, May 26.
