CLEARCREEK TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Clearcreek Township had extra traffic patrols out during the month of February.
The extra patrols were a part of the Police Division’s effort to make Township roads safer for residents and visitors. Funding for the extra patrols is coming from the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services as part of Clearcreek Township’s participation in their High Visibility Enforcement Overtime (HVEO) Grant. During February HVEO patrols resulted in sixteen additional citations being issued.
“Most of the additional citations were for speed and stop sign violations.” said Sgt. Wally Stacy, Clearcreek Township’s HVEO grant coordinator. “These are offenses that are often tied to traffic crashes within the Township”
The goal of the HVEO grant program is to make Ohio’s roadways safer by increasing enforcement of Ohio’s traffic laws.
