Sheriff’s Office want: a new traffic unit

At their meeting next week (Tuesday,) Oconee County councilmen  will consider a request to apply for a federal grant that would allow the Sheriff’s Office to start a new traffic unit.  Sheriff Crenshaw’s office seeks first-year funding “for a 4-Person Special Traffic Enforcement Unit (STEU) to include (3) Road Cps., (4) patrol SUVs, officer equipment and a public awareness campaign to reduce deaths/collisions, reduce speeding, reduce DUIs/Impaired driving, and increase seat belt and helmet usage.”
