Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox reports the sheriff’s office has been awarded up to $3,000 for deputy sheriffs to work driving while intoxicated/impaired driver enforcement activities.

The department also could receive up to another $2,000 for hazardous driving violations on highways in Livingston County. Cox says the grants pay overtime for deputy sheriffs to conduct the enforcement activities from October 1st, 2018 to September 30th, 2019.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office has Hometown safety Projects scheduled periodically throughout the contract period in an attempt to make roads and Livingston County safer.

Chief Deputy Michael Claypole applied for the two safety grants and is the project manager.
