Woodstock PD conduct special enforcement

WOODSTOCK – During September, the Woodstock Police will engage in a special enforcement initiative targeting posted speed limit/school speed zone compliance, cellphone use in school zones, and the use of cellphones in construction zones.

The police department has set the following goals:

1. To reduce the number of speed violations while school in session.

2. To increase enforcement of speed laws.

3. To increase compliance with the posted speed limit while school is in session and enforce the law prohibiting the use of cellphone in school zones while school is in session.

4. To increase compliance with the law prohibiting the use of cellphones in construction zones.

Officers will adopt a low-tolerance philosophy regarding school speed zone-related violations, although the outcome of the stop will remain at the officer’s discretion.

For information, contact Sgt. Dennis Leard at 815-338-2131 or dleard@woodstockil.gov.
