The Sheriff’s Office will be able to keep El Paso County a little safer in 2015. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, through the Texas Department of Transportation, awarded the Sheriff’s Office a comprehensive grant that will supplement the number of Deputies patrolling the streets. The grant will give deputies the opportunity to target DWI drivers, seat belt and child safety seat violations, and speed violations. The grant also allows deputies to increase high visibility enforcement of intersection traffic control laws in high traffic areas. The Sheriff’s Office was awarded approximately $83,255 with a match in services of approximately $33,805 for a total project cost of approximately $117,061. The grant becomes effective in October and ends in November of 2015.
