The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has received a $50,000 grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety to support law enforcement’s participation in the Joining Forces traffic safety campaigns during the coming year.
Joining Forces is a high visibility, multi-jurisdiction statewide effort to increase safety on Nevada’s roads by increasing enforcement and awareness of traffic laws. The goal is to reduce crashes and save lives by focusing on impaired driving, distracted driving, seat belt use, speed, and pedestrian safety.
Thanks to this grant award, The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office will be able to team up with other area jurisdictions for a number of Joining Forces events from October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.
Any questions regarding this program can be directed to Lyon County Sheriff’s Office Captain, Johnny Smith or Deputy Julie Redmond at (775) 577-5023.
