On Friday, June 19th, several deputies working in conjunction with the traffic team will be performing a group deployment. They will focus on speed and the Move Over Law, however citations will be issued for all observed violations. There will also be a zero tolerance for seatbelt violations.
On Saturday, June 20th, Sheriff’s Deputies working the specialized OWI enforcement will be concentrating on areas like Cottage Grove where they are celebrating Firemen’s Festival. So please remember to plan ahead for a designated driver, or take advantage of the safe ride program provided at the festival.
