Sheriff Shane Doyle gave the monthly activity report for his office for the month of May.
The Sheriff also gave a summary of the now completed Click It Or Ticket Campaign. Local officers worked overtime funded by the state, setting up checkpoints and extending patrolling hours in an effort to encourage drivers to wear their seat belts as well as follow all other traffic laws. "As I've stated before, we didn't implement this campaign so we could write more tickets," Doyle said. "This was about safety and encouraging drivers to have better habits. In the process, we also got more drugs out of our communities, more drunk drivers off the road, and people without insurance to acquire it."
The campaign resulted in the following:
4 DUI arrests
14 Other arrests
16 Speeding citations
10 Seat Belt citations
74 Other traffic citations
