WESTERN SPRINGS – Western Springs police are coordinating the seventh annual Police on Board for Raily Safety campaign.

La Grange police officers will hand out educational materials at the Stone Avenue and Burlington Avenue stations.

On May 21, officers will patrol all three stations and nearby crossings to ensure that pedestrians and vehicles are being safe near the tracks.
