Area Law Enforcement Saturation Patrols Produce Results Over the Easter Weekend
Our longtime friend, Ken Decoster, joins the WROK Morning Show every Tuesday after the 8:30am news to share the latest from both the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and Crimestoppers. One of our topics this morning was the results of the weekend’s “saturation patrols” of high crime areas.
On Friday, April 14th, and on Saturday, April 15th, the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department, along with the Rockford Police Department, Illinois State Police, Loves Park Police, South Beloit Police, Village of Winnebago Police, and the Department of Homeland Security hit the streets in some of our area’s highest crime spots, and as in previous outings, they produced results.
153 traffic stops
59 citations issued
62 written warnings were given
18 arrests were made for Driving after Suspension/Revocation

3 handguns were recovered, one of which had been stolen
1 stolen vehicle was recovered
