Deputies Mobilizing for Thanksgiving

KSAL StaffNovember 16, 2016

Law enforcement around Kansas are mobilizing for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is among organizations participating in the annual Special Traffic Enforcement Program. The enforcement program is courtesy of a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Officers will focus on impaired drivers, child passenger safety laws, and seat belt use among travelers of all ages. Because of the STEP campaign funding, there will be more law enforcement officers on Kansas’ streets and highways during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday period when travel increases in Kansas and across the nation.

According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, in comparison with other holidays, the Thanksgiving holiday period outranks all but New Year’s in average number of alcohol-related crashes.

The Thanksgiving enforcement period this year is Monday November 21st through Sunday November 27th.
