CALUMET CITY | The Calumet City Police Department will conduct safety enforcement zones from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. beginning Friday through July 6 focusing on drunken drivers and seat belt violators.

The enforcement will be conducted at the intersections of Sibley Boulevard and Campbell Avenue; Dolton and Paxton avenues; Torrence and Cleveland avenues and 165th Street and Burnham Avenue.

"Summer is in full force and so is the summer travel season," said Police Chief Edward Gilmore. "All too often, that means more traffic and more traffic crashes and Independence Day can be one of the deadliest summer travel times. Too many people die each year due to those who choose to drive after drinking so our officers will be out in full force this Independence Day showing zero tolerance for drunk drivers and belt law violators."

The Calumet City Police Department will join the Illinois State Police and hundreds of police and sheriff's departments in the statewide enforcement effort.
