Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to beef up patrol
Officers will be patrolling for drunk drivers and speeders during special enforcement measures Friday night, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.
“Sheriff’s deputies will be out in force from 7 p.m. Friday and into the early morning hours of Saturday,” said Sgt. Steve Lewis, agency spokesman.
Deputies will be monitoring traffic and targeting speeding, impaired drivers, and seat belt and child restraint use, he said.
The enforcement efforts are the result of a partnership between the sheriff’s office and the Kansas Department of Transportation, and aim to reduce deaths and injuries from car crashes.
