Lisle police this month join hundreds of other police departments in cracking down on those who do not buckle up.

The Lisle Police Department urges motorists to safely celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
The Lisle Police Department announced that it will conduct special patrols this St. Patrick’s Day weekend to crack down on drunk drivers. The patrols begin March 14 and run through March 17. Unbuckled motorists also will be ticketed. "If you plan on drinking alcohol, designate a sober driver before the party begins," Watch Commander Ron Wilke said. "Be responsible or risk a DUI. Too often, St. Patrick’s Day can be a deadly and dangerous time on our roadways because of drunk driving." In addition to looking for drunk drivers, Lisle police will step up seat belt enforcement, particularly at night when seat belt usage rates are lowest. Always designating a sober driver and not letting friends drive drunk are just two simple steps to help …

The Lisle Village Board approved a request presented by Police Chief James Kosatka to hire two additional patrol officers as well as two part-time community service officers.
Chief Kosatka said he hopes to have two new police officers hired by fall so they can get into the police training academy in October. Two part-time community service officers (CSO's) will be trained and each will work about 20 hours a week. Kosatka said a decision was made last year after he joined the force to buy out the contracts of three police officers to better manage the department. But after they left, three other officers left for various reasons, putting the total count of officers to 26, below the legal number established in a village ordinance. The ordinance stipulates the police department must have at least 28 full-time officers and not more than 35. "We've been trying to be as frugal as possible trying to redistribute the …
