The Decatur Police Department announces Labor Day ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ campaign results



The Decatur Police Department made 28 DUI arrests during the recent Labor Day campaign. In addition, 3 seat belt citations were written, all of which occurred during nighttime hours.

“As law enforcement officers, we do our best to protect motorists and pedestrians” said Sgt. Steve Hagemeyer. “While enforcement campaigns like these save lives, there is still much to be done. Please help us spread the message: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”

The Decatur Police Department joined forces with other law enforcement agencies and highway safety partners throughout the state for the Labor Day traffic safety campaign.

The program was made possible by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
