Enforcement stepped up during holidays

During increased enforcement in a 24-day span through the Thanksgiving holiday, the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department issued 97 tickets within the county. No arrests were made for driving while intoxicated, though.

The increase in enforcement around Thanksgiving is an annual statewide effort to keep roadways safe. It is supported by federal highway safety funding.
