CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Some Clinton County law enforcement agencies are gearing up to crack down on unsafe drivers.

The Frankfort Traffic Safety Partnership received $28,000 in grants from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.

The grants will be used to allow more officers to work on driving under the influence and operation pull over initiatives.

The Frankfort Police Department, Clinton County Sheriff’s Office and the Kirklin Police Department will all work together to target dangerous drivers.

Deputy Chief Scott Shoemaker said overall, he’d like to see a decrease in traffic-related deaths.

“I think people should understand that while we’ll be out there with this aggressive enforcement, it’s to protect the majority of people who comply with those laws,” said Shoemaker.

The DUI grant will be used year-round, while the operation pull over grant will be used at four different mobilization events.
