Catoosa County Sheriff's Office participating in month long concentrated patrol to reduce crashes
On July 1, 2019, the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office will be getting one month of concentrated patrol efforts to make the roadways of Catoosa County safer. During the month, additional deputies will be assigned different days, and times to hold concentrated patrols throughout the county to identify distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving along with all other violations of law. "We are still seeing a number of people not obeying the hands-free law in Georgia with Tennessee's law going into effect July 1, now is a good time to remind everyone operating a motor vehicle on the roadways in Georgia about the wall already in effect.", according to Sheriff Gary R. Sisk. This is a correlation with the Georgia Governors Office of Highway Safety 100 days of Summer H.E.A.T. (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic) campaign designed to reduce fatal crash counts during George’s deadliest holiday driving period from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
