DES PLAINES, Ill. — Des Plaines police announced Tuesday that 13 officers have been suspended between seven and 60 days each for their parts in a scheme to misrepresent their participation in grant-funded traffic enforcement campaigns.

The officers, whose names were not disclosed, were cited for violations that included conduct unbecoming; obedience of laws and regulations; reporting violations of laws, ordinances, rules or orders; and truthfulness, police said. Twelve of the 13 officers disciplined are assigned to the department's patrol division. The other is in the detective division.
