Traffic enforcement grants awarded

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded two traffic enforcement grants totaling $34,028.72 by the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Sheriff Roy Miller said the Impaired Driving Enforcement Program and the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program grants took effect Oct. 1 and run through Sept. 30, 2019. The grants will provide funds to pay for extra patrol on various dates and during various times for traffic law enforcement. Deputies will focus on such violations as speed, seat belts, distracted drivers, and impaired drivers.

The dates, times, and locations of the extra patrol will be announced prior to taking place.
