Gurnee police have announced results from a special enforcement campaign over the Fourth of July holiday.

Officers logged 58 extra hours during the campaign, issuing 47 safety restraint citations and making four drug- and alcohol-related arrests.

Police conducted enhanced impaired driver and safety restraint enforcement activities villagewide from June 28 through July 7. Funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the enforcement actions were conducted in order to remove drunk and drugged drivers from the roadways and increase safety restraint compliance, Gurnee police said.
