The Des Plaines (Ill.) Police Department handed out suspensions today to 13 officers who the department said were found to have violated department rules and regulations in connection with an internal investigation into misreporting of DUI arrests to obtain overtime pay from a federally funded grant.

The 13 officers—12 assigned to the patrol division and one in the detective division—were not named in a release announcing the disciplinary action.

They face suspensions ranging from seven days to 60 days, officials said.
