The Stark County Sheriff’s Office will begin an enforcement period focusing on Speed, Impaired Driving and Restraint Use. This enforcement period will be from JUNE 7, 2013 through JUNE 30, 2013.  This will be an additional 120 hours of enforcement throughout Stark County.

The Stark County Sheriff’s Office will have increased enforcement and patrol throughout Stark County during this period and strictly enforce the laws concerning speed, impaired driving and restraint use.

The Sheriff’s Office will continue, as in the past, to pay special attention to high traffic accident areas and make every effort to reduce any further accidents on Stark County’s roadways and intersections.

The Stark County Sheriff’s Office received a grant through the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Ohio Traffic Safety Office, which provides for the additional funding and allows the Stark County Sheriff’s Office to participate in these programs.
