Sheriff Walt Wilson says the 2013 High Visibility Enforcement Overtime Grant of $28,353 will provide 100-percent reimbursement for 700 hours of overtime for stepped-up traffic enforcement.
Wilson says his office has received this grant the past four years.
Wilson says there are sixteen scheduled details throughout the grant period with a majority of them occurring around the various holidays.
Wilson says grants such as this one are important to his office.
Wilson also says his office wants to remind motorists to buckle up and drive the speed limit during the Thanksgiving holiday.
He says in the past, Thanksgiving has been the heaviest-traveled holiday on Ohio roadways, so when traveling to your destination this year, obey the traffic laws and drive safely.
