Naperville Police to Conduct Grant-Funded Speed Enforcement Campaign

The Naperville Police Department is participating in a grant-funded enforcement campaign this week to generate awareness of and reduce incidents of speeding, which is one of the leading contributing causes of crashes on our roadways.

“We’re pleased to receive this grant to step up our road safety efforts with the goal of saving lives,” said Naperville Police Sgt. Derek Zook. “Our mission is to make travel safer through directed, proactive patrols and to stop, cite and arrest those who choose to violate traffic laws.”

This campaign supplements the department’s daily enforcement of traffic laws in the City of Naperville by using grant funds to put additional officers on the streets to concentrate on specific dangerous driving behaviors.

This enforcement effort is part of the 2023 Sustained Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) grant, which is funded by federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
