Crystal Lake had extra officers out on June 29, July 3 and July 6 to help increase safety on the roads, according to the release. During the Crystal Lake mobilization the police department stopped 31 drivers for traffic violations and issued 33 citations and warnings.
There were seven safety belt citations, one child restraint citation, four phone citations, 10 speeding citations, one uninsured vehicle citation, two equipment and other moving citations, one driving a vehicle without a valid license citation, and seven written warnings, according to the release.
