Campaign Against Speeding

October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021

 Law Enforcement will be focusing on Speeders in Douglas County.

 

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) received a grant that will allow increasing high visibility traffic patrol enforcement in strategic areas of the County which are prone to speeding from October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021. DCSO receives information from the public in regards to speeding on a regular basis and will be using this information to select areas of priority or concern.  Radar guns have been purchased through a grant for accurately and effectively patrolling against speeding.

DCSO believes that through driving behavior and mind-set changes from the Campaign Against Speeding, the community will become more aware that speeding results in traffic safety issues that can harm the community, businesses and the economy.

This grant was funded by the State of Nevada, Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety. The grant pays for equipment and all Deputies overtime to focus on speeders within Douglas County.
