The Bartlett Police Department on Wednesday was presented with the 2019-2020 Railroad Crossing Safety Award at the virtual Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge Awards event sponsored by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police.

The department was recognized for its efforts to address vehicle and pedestrian safety at the rail grade crossings in its jurisdiction.


The Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge is an innovative traffic safety awards program that targets four major traffic safety priorities: occupant protection, distracted driving, impaired driving and speeding. It is a template for law enforcement agencies to identify traffic issues, plan strategies, reduce social harm and improve the quality of life in their communities.
