2015 Illinois DUI Arrest Statistics

On June 28, 2016 The Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists of Schaumburg, Illinois published their 26th Annual DUI Arrest Survey. (pdf)

The survey covers DUI arrests for the year 2015. Nearly 700 Illinois police agencies were surveyed and 81% responded.

Notable excerpts from the Press Release include:

The Carol Stream and Rockford Police Departments are first in the state in DUI arrests among municipal departments with 464 arrests for 2015. (Because of its size, Chicago is in its own category.) Both of these departments have consistently ranked within the top eight departments in AAIM’s survey since 2007. “The men and women of this department work extremely hard arresting offenders that present a danger to all the people within the community. I am very proud to work with people dedicated to making the lives of all of our residents a little safer,” states Carol Stream Police Chief Ed Sailer.


Arrests made by the Chicago Police decreased minimally by 0.2% in 2015 (3315) compared to 2014 (3,321), Illinois State Police arrests increased by 13.88% in 2015 (6,584) compared to 2014 (5,784). The sheriff’s department reporting the most DUI arrests was Lake County (367), while Cook (331), Winnebago (278), Will (205) and Champaign (204) Counties round out the top five sheriff departments.

A detailed listing of survey results and participating departments can be found in the “2015 DUI Counts“, which includes statistics on a variety of Illinois municipal police departments’ DUI arrests as well as those of the Illinois counties sheriff’s departments and the Illinois State Police (ISP).
