ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF AN ALCOHOL COUNTERMEASURE ENFORCEMENT PATROL

Carmi – Illinois State Police (ISP) District 19 Commander, Captain Nathan Douglas, announces
the results of an Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement (ACE) patrol held in Saline and Gallatin
Counties in February. This ACE patrol allowed the ISP to focus on preventing, detecting, and
taking enforcement action in response to violations associated with impaired driving and illegal
transportation or consumption of alcohol or drugs.

Alcohol and drug impairment is a factor in more than 30 percent of all fatal motor vehicle crashes
in Illinois. There is one alcohol-related traffic fatality every 53 minutes in the United States. The
ACE program allows officers to work even harder at removing dangerous DUI offenders from the
road. This project is funded through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
