ISP District 19 to conduct OREP in White and Hamilton Counties

Illinois State Police (ISP) District 19 Commander, Captain Cory Ristvedt, announces the ISP will conduct an Occupant Restraint Enforcement Patrol (OREP) in White and Hamilton Counties during late September. OREPs allow the ISP to focus on safety belt and child safety seat laws. Illinois law requires all vehicle passengers (front and back) to be buckled up!

Safety belts are still one of the most effective safety devices in vehicles, estimated to save nearly 14,000 lives each year. Half of vehicle occupants killed in a traffic crash were not properly buckled up. The objective of this program is to increase occupant restraint compliance through education, child seat inspections, and enforcement.
