COOK COUNTY, IL, August 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Illinois State Police made nearly 10,000 DUI arrests in 2011. The Chicago Police Department made more than 3,000 such arrests. Cook County police officers made an additional 475 DUI arrests. With the latest survey of arrest records for police departments across the state, it is clearer than ever that drinking and driving enforcement is one of the state's top priorities.
Among the Cook County police departments reporting high totals of DUI arrests
were Chicago (3,037 arrests), Chicago Heights (265 arrests), Orland Park (263 arrests), Schaumburg (250 arrests)
, Oak Lawn (245 arrests), Evanston (225 arrests), Skokie (220 arrests) and Palatine (214 arrests)
. With thousands of arrests happening every year, it is easy to see how a person charged with DUI can feel pressured by the system. You should not plead guilty until you have spoken to a knowledgeable DUI defense attorney
about your situation.
DUI Lawyer John W. Callahan
reports, "Many clients who could help themselves by contacting a DUI Lawyer right after the arrest often put themselves at a disadvantage by waiting a week or two after the arrest to retain a lawyer. This is a huge mistake as every day that the client waits to retain a DUI Lawyer can reduce the likelihood of beating the DUI suspension
on the client's case."
