Marion County Sheriff Tim Bailey announced his office will be participating in a countywide traffic enforcement detail targeting speed and alcohol related violations for the upcoming High School Proms. Deputies will be conducting extra traffic enforcement and patrol now through May 12th. In an effort to ensure the safety of the motoring public, the sheriff’s office will be enforcing a Zero Tolerance Policy on speeding, drunk driving, and seatbelt violations. Marion County residents are urged to obey traffic laws to ensure a safe and enjoyable prom season.
The extra patrol activities were made possible through a grant from the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.
