Marshall County to Participate in Special Traffic Enforcement Program

May 22, 2013

Marshall County - The Marshall County Sheriff's Office will be participating in a statewide Special Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) in a two week time period encompassing the Memorial Day Holiday. 

During this time, there will be additional Deputies working traffic enforcement overtime funded by the Governor's Traffic Safety Bureau. Deputies will be enforcing traffic laws and specifically focusing on dangerous driving behaviors including speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving, and motorists not wearing safety belts. These dangerous driving behaviors are some of the main contributing factors in crashes resulting in injury or death. Expect to see additional officers working statewide during this STEP wave. All officers are working toward the common goal of making our roadways safer and reducing fatal crashes. This is part of the statewide goal of "Toward Zero Deaths" on Iowa roadways. Sheriff Kamatchus is committed to keeping motorists safe in Marshall County.
