The Churchill County Sheriff's Office received a $30,000 grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety, to support their renewed participation in the Joining Forces traffic safety campaigns during the coming year.
With the grant, the Sheriff's Office will be able to team up with other area agencies for several Joining Forces events from October 2022 through September 2023.
Joining Forces is a high visibility, multi-jurisdictional statewide effort to increase safety on Nevada's roads by increasing enforcement and awareness of traffic laws including distracted
driving, seat belts, speeding, and pedestrian safety.
This will be the first year the Churchill County Sheriff's Office has participated in the program under Sheriff Richard Hickox's direction.
The Sheriff's Office will utilize the data from prior year's enforcement efforts to implement planned enforcement and awareness activities. Our goal is to reduce the number of traffic
fatalities as well as decrease the incidents of impaired driving.
Whether you are a driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian, the Churchill County Sheriff's Office reminds everyone to make safety on our roadways a top priority.
