Sheriff’s office watching for unbuckled teens in seatbelt enforcement program

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office will participate in an upcoming Kansas Highway Patrol enforcement program that focuses on educating Kansas teens on the dangers of driving or riding without a seatbelt.

According to Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn, local deputies will participate in the enforcement program Feb. 29 through March 11.

“We will be looking for teen drivers and their occupants who are not properly restrained,” Dunn said in a press release. “A reminder: Kansas law states that everyone should be properly restrained.”

Dunn also reminded citizens the sheriff’s office has a deputy who can check car seats to ensure correct fit for toddlers or infants.
