The McHenry County Sheriff's Office was recognized on August 14, 2019 by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police for first place in the Sheriff 101-250 sworn category in the Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge. This recognition occurred at the annual Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge Awards Ceremony in Tinley Park, Illinois.

 The Illinois Traffic Safety Challenge, coordinated by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, is designed to challenge police departments to address traffic safety concerns in their jurisdictions in unique ways. Departments are judged in the following categories: policy, training, recognitions, public education, enforcement, and effectiveness.  After reviewing the individual department's accomplishments, the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police recognizes the law enforcement agencies in the state that were able to demonstrate exemplary traffic safety and enforcement programs.

 "The Traffic Safety Challenge reaffirms just how important traffic safety education and enforcement are in protecting those on our roadways.  We are very proud of the efforts of not only the traffic unit but the entire department as well." Sheriff Bill Prim remarked.

The Illinois Department of Transportation Division of Traffic safety has also assisted the Sheriff's Office efforts through providing grant funding in occupant protection, speed enforcement, construction zone safety, and impaired driving.  All the efforts put forth have one common goal: making the roadways of McHenry County safer place to be for our community.
