Belvidere Police adds officers for Cinco de Mayo patrol


Thanks to an Illinois Department of Transportation grant, the Belvidere Police Department will step up roving patrols during the Cinco de Mayo holiday.

Off-duty officers will be hired back between May 1 and May 5. They will then be deployed at or near high-crash intersections and locations that see high traffic.

Belvidere Police Chief Jan Noble is encouraging drivers to use their seat belts and designate a sober driver if needed.
