A joint multi-agency enforcement effort took place April 24 on the U.S. 20 corridor in Huron County.
The joint effort included the collaboration of five law enforcement agencies, including the police departments of Norwalk, Monroeville, Bellevue and Wakeman, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Norwalk post.
The effort took place to focus on traffic and criminal patrol efforts. All agencies formed a joint partnership to initiate the effort in their respective jurisdictions.
The mission of the U.S. 20 corridor detail was to bring law enforcement agencies together in an effort to address concerns regarding traffic safety and criminal activity on U.S. 20 and the roads that flow into it. All agencies involved brought a variety of resources to the table. The sharing of those resources was invaluable to the overall mission of the detail in making the roads and communities safe for all motorists and residents in Huron County.
Here is a summary of the efforts of the agencies involved:
Traffic: 68 traffic stops, 38 enforcement contacts, one driving under suspension arrest, one fictitious registration citation, two seat belt citations, one reckless operator citation (road rage) and 30 warnings.
Criminal: three criminal arrests, one felony drug arrest, two summons.
