SCSO is joining 140 other law enforcement agencies in actively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the “Click it or Ticket” campaign

Shawnee County, KANSAS – The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office has announced that, beginning Monday, May 22, 2022 and continuing through Thursday, June 2, travelers can expect increased police presence on the roadways of Shawnee County.

SCSO officials also said that this activity is reportedly supported through a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.

Enforcement will occur around the clock.

Seatbelt use diminishes after nightfall, meaning the likelihood of unbelted crash injuries and deaths rise during those hours.

Working in partnership with the community to protect and serve with honor, integrity, and professionalism, the Sheriff’s Office said.

This is a developing story and it will be updated as new information become available.
