Cook County Sheriff’s Office Hosts Largest Free Vehicle Light Repair Event (Richton Park, IL) – The Cook County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a free Vehicle Light Repair Event – the largest to date with more than 60 participants registered. The goal of the program is to help community members in Cook County get their vehicle lights, such as taillights, headlights, and license plate lights, fixed for free. These repairs help to avoid tickets, fees, and traffic stops all while improving road safety.
Members of the Cook County Sheriff’s Community Engagement Team and Richton Township community members will be on hand. The event will take place Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 22013 Governors Highway, Richton Park, IL 60471. Proper COVID-19 precautions will be observed, including social distancing, appropriate use of face masks, and hand sanitization.
*Community registration for the event on November 18th in Richton Park is closed.
The Sheriff’s Office has made long-term investments in non-traditional law enforcement programs. The Sheriff’s Car Light Replacement Program falls into this non-traditional model.
CCSO mechanics provide the expertise necessary to replace defective and missing lights on vehicles. Replacing broken bulbs reduces the number of traffic-related stops and removes some auto repair costs. It also eliminates court costs and associated fees.
