Naperville cops win ‘traffic safety challenge’

The Naperville Police Department won top honors in the recent Illinois Safety Challenge, sponsored by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police Traffic Committee.

Naperville police took first place in the contest, which was held Aug. 20 in southwest suburban Tinley Park.

The challenge “recognizes the top traffic safety programs in Illinois,” according to a release issued by police. It targets “three major traffic safety priorities: occupant protection, speeding, and impaired driving.”

Law enforcement agencies “are evaluated in a variety of areas, including educational programs, communication strategies, departmental policies promoting safety, and enforcement efforts. The Naperville Police Department utilizes a combination of these strategies to promote traffic safety, with a priority of saving lives and reducing traffic crash injuries.”

The release stated the challenge “is a friendly, year-long competition among local, county, and state law enforcement agencies. Applications are grouped into categories based on agency type and number of police officers,” with entrants “judged by a team of nationally recognized traffic safety experts and law enforcement professionals.”
