The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office is planning extra patrols over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Three overtime shifts will be scheduled during the weekend to promote safety among drivers, as well as draw awareness to the other traffic on the roadways.
Deputies assigned to the overtime duties will work afternoon, evening and night hours to have optimum contact with drivers who could be impaired.
Deputies will enforce all traffic laws, with emphasis on speed, OVI and seat belt violations during this time.
This overtime is part of a grant received by The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.
