Rumor Patrol: Subject Impersonating Police

BE ADVISED: We have heard of numerous rumors circulating suggesting that police officers are randomly stopping motorists to inquire their reasoning for driving and asking for the drivers to display proof that their travels are deemed essential. Please be advised that this is NOT true. We have received multiple reports that someone, NOT a Sheriff’s Deputy, is pulling over motorists in Kankakee/Will counties (in a personal car) and requesting a $500 fine for traveling during the quarantine. If this occurs, we are suggesting you call 911. We continue to encourage all area residents and motorists to adhere to the suggestions set forth by the President, Governor and other representatives requesting the community to prevent non‐essential travel and socializing. Remember, we are #InThisTogether
