Police Charger


The Halstead Police Department is a big proponent of seat belt use.  The department does participate in the Click-it-or-Ticket traffic enforcement campaign and would like to encourage everyone to be safe and buckle up!

This is a 2 part campaign.  The first step is to focus on the promotion of seat belt safety while the second step is to prevent driving while intoxicated.  You Drink, You Drive, You Lose.
