Sheriff's office upping holiday traffic patrol

December 11, 2009

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office will have extra patrol throughout the 2009 Christmas holiday season. Six overtime shifts will be scheduled in an attempt to promote safety among drivers and draw awareness to traffic on the roadways.

The deputies assigned to the overtime duties will work varying hours during the shifts. The deputies will enforce all traffic laws with emphasis on speed, OVI and seat belt violations.
This overtime is funded by a grant received by the sheriff's office from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office.
