Extra Patrols Will Be Out on Halloween

Again this year Kanawha County Sheriff John Rutherford has authorized extra Halloween Patrols, and that means there will be 26 Deputies out on patrol from around 5:00p until needed on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. These extra Deputies will be placed in areas historically prone to Halloween vandalism, and they'll be in both marked and un-marked vehicles as well as on foot with strict orders of “Zero Tolerance” for would-be vandals. Captain Sean Crosier tells us those found breaking the law will be arrested.

In addition to the normal and Halloween Patrols we will be using grant funding from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program specifically for Drunk Driving Prevention. Consequently there will be an additional 3-5 Deputies searching for impaired drivers.
