Increased Traffic Enforcement Slated to Begin March 11

Beginning March 11th and extending thru March 22nd, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office will join other Kansas Law Enforcement Agencies to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years.  In 2012, 43 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 74% of those teens were NOT PROPERLY RESTRAINED.

In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the State of Kansas will be extra vigilant when patrolling around schools. 

There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort, which is a component of the successful S.A.F.E. (Seatbelts Are For Everyone) Program.  Officers will be issuing citations to those individuals who choose not to obey traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting and driving or not buckling up.
