Approximately one-third of our service calls are traffic-related, with most of the traffic passing through the North Sherman Corridor. The duration of a traffic stop varies, but the vast majority are completed in less than 10 minutes. It is common for a violation observed on Sherman Avenue to result in a stop beyond village limits, typically not far unless the suspect evades arrest. This occurs because officers need time to make observations, verify information, and coordinate resources before activating their lights to ensure accuracy and safety. Given the small size of our community, this often means stops extend just outside village limits. With two officers on duty, one officer can provide backup for safety while the other can break away to respond to other calls once the traffic situation is under control.
