Sheriff Mark Curran announced the Lake County Sheriff’s Office is conducting traffic safety patrols beginning Monday, June 25 through Saturday, July 7, 2018.

Remember to be sure your passengers are buckled up, you don’t text and drive, and If you plan on drinking, designate a driver. Lastly, remember to share the road.”
