March 25, 2019

SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies arrested four people for driving under the influence and issued six seat belt violation citations during their St. Patrick’s Day traffic enforcement period.

“Because of the efforts by our community leaders to spread the word about alcohol- and drug-impaired driving, the streets were safer during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday,” Sheriff’s Lt. Jim Burgh said in a news release. “We strongly enforce traffic laws for one reason – to save lives.”

The Sheriff’s office announced in advance plans to have special patrols on the street during the weekend of March 15 to 17, which included the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
