During the Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign just completed, Seward County Sheriff’s Office conducted patrols to aggressively target the impaired driver. Over the period, November 20- 29th, officers conducted 1 DUI arrests and issued 2 safety belt citations, 0 child restraint citations, and 5 speeding citations, along with 17 other citations and arrests. All told, officers made 53 enforcement stops during the campaign.

According to agency spokesperson Undersheriff Gene Ward, “the driving force behind enforcement campaigns like this is, first and foremost, to save lives and reduce injury on our Kansas roads.”

While this particular campaign may be over, our agency will always be vigilant in our enforcement of Kansas traffic safety laws.


The Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign was supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
