SHERIFF’S ROAD PATROL, 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week, returned Saturday, Aug. 1, said Shiawassee County Undersheriff Doug Powell.
Talking about the plans on Tuesday afternoon, July 28, he said eight deputies will be working the shift and that some focused traffic enforcement may be scheduled on major roadways and state trunklines.
“We’ll be evaluating how it is going in the third week of August because we have the Fair along with other places we want to be,” said Powell.
He is shown here when he announced, during the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce Networking at Noon Luncheon June 23 at the new D’Mar Banquet and Conference Center, plans to have daytime road patrol again.
“We’ll be working closely with the State Police,” said Powell. “We’ve always worked very well together.”
Since the State Police have increased the number of troopers assigned to Shiawassee County, there have been more tickets issued for traffic violations, slowing speeders on M-21 and M-52 in Owosso, as an example. (Independent File Photo/BILL CONSTINE)
