On June 28, 2016 The Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) of Schaumburg, Illinois published their 26th Annual DUI Arrest Survey. (pdf)
The survey covers DUI arrests for the year 2015. Nearly 700 Illinois police agencies were surveyed and 81% responded.
As seen in the AAIM statistics, among municipalities Carol Stream was tied for the highest number of DUI arrests, with 464 arrests in 2015. This equates to a “DUI Arrest Rate” of 7.61 per officer, which is highest in the state for those municipalities featured.
An excerpt from the Press Release concerning the Carol Stream arrest record:
The highest DUI arrest rate in the state among departments making at least 200 arrests was Carol Stream, which had 7.61 arrests per sworn officer. Since 2007, Carol Stream has been one of the top three departments in DUI arrests per officer. This small department continues their significant impact in saving lives. The second highest rate of 5.25 was in Fairview Heights. Arrests per officer are an indicator of a department’s emphasis on DUI enforcement and are a measure that can be used to compare smaller departments.
The CBS Chicago segment (with video) of July 1, 2016, titled “Western Suburb Police Force Claims Title For Most DUI Busts In 2015” further discusses the driving under the influence enforcement efforts of Carol Stream. Also mentioned is enforcement efforts to stop those driving under the influence of drugs such as marijuana and heroin.
Additional details regarding these drunk driving enforcement efforts can be seen in the AAIM and CBS Chicago sources mentioned above.
