PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

 

 

NAPOLEONVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon announces that the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office has received grant funding in conjunction with the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration for the 2017 "Click It or Ticket” Campaign which will run from May 22 thru June 04, 2017, and "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”, will run from August 18 thru September 03, 2017.

 

These campaigns are a concentrated effort targeting non-users of seatbelt restraint systems and impaired drivers. Such enforcement has been effective in reducing fatalities and serious injuries in auto crashes as well as building public awareness to these lifesaving measures.

 

The Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office will be dedicating grant resources as well as general office funding to concentrate on these important issues.
