Elmhurst deputy police chief to present at symposium

ELMHURST – Jim Kveton, Elmhurst deputy chief of police, on Friday will present and lead a technical tour for those participating in the Global Level Crossing Safety & Trespass Prevention Symposium.

Kveton has been part of a team effort that's been successful in helping reduce railroad collisions and crossing-related fatalities, according to a city news release. Elmhurst has experienced just one fatal incident in the last 20 years. During a previous 12-month period from 1992 to 1993, there were three fatal collisions involving trains in Elmhurst,

Elmhurst's comprehensive approach has led to requests from municipalities around the country to present and share best-practice safety measures, the release said.

Kveton will be presenting at the symposium at 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Elmhurst Historical Museum, 120 E. Park Ave, Elmhurst.
