We joined law enforcement across Kansas for the Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic campaign over the holiday. This initiative enforces all traffic laws, with an extra emphasis on seat belt laws.

Locally during the campaign, we made six citations, provided 24 warnings and conducted a DUI test. While enforcing laws is one component of this campaign, our larger goal is education on the importance of seat belts. Seat belts save lives, and we want you to get to your friends and family safely, especially during the holidays.

The Thanksgiving Safe Arrival campaign is supported through grants from the Kansas Department of Transportation.

A few weeks ago, Regional STAND Board Members from Sedgwick spoke at the November School Board Meeting to share their concerns with the current student drug policy at the high school. Students shared what they have seen in the schools in terms of substance use, as well as their concerns that the current policy did not address the root of the problem. Their proposal was to change the current drug policy to include Teen Intervene to provide additional support to students. After their presentation, the Sedgwick School Board unanimously approved the proposed policy!

Our little holiday treat is bringing back our Know Your Deputy videos! It's been a little bit, but we really enjoy helping our community members get to meet our deputies. For our reintroduction, we're starting with Skyler Hinton. Hinton is a road deputy, and also the partner of our new K-9, Max (who makes several cameos in this video).
