Huntingburg police mount extra patrolsApril 21, 2014
From local sources
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Police Department has landed a $1,000 grant that is allowing officers to conduct extra patrols enforcing seat belt laws, including watching for child restraint violations.
The grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is for enforcement to increase seat belt usage in rural areas, according to Assistant Chief Ronnie Bowman.
Huntingburg began stepping up patrols Friday. The extra enforcement will run through May 8.
Bowman said officers will be conducting the extra patrols at various times and locations throughout Huntingburg, but will be focusing on high crash locations and locations where residents have complained about speeding.
Anyone with questions about seat belt use and child restraint regulations can contact the Huntingburg Police Department at 812-683-4111.
