The problem of traffic
violators is a growing aggravation to all of us. The men
and women of the Porter County Sheriff’s Office write
thousands of citations every year but we will never be
able to witness the countless instances of careless
driving that occur throughout our county each day.
That’s why we are offering
this chance for you to have a positive impact on the way
vehicles drive through your own neighborhood.
The next time someone runs
the stop sign at the end of your block, or speeds
through a school zone, then write down the place, date,
time and license plate number, and either fill out our
online report form, or stop by the Sheriff’s Office to
fill out the form there. Please do not personally
confront the occupant(s) of the car.
We will send a letter to
the home of the registered owner of the vehicle and
alert them that it is in everyone’s best interest to use
more care when driving.
You must be very sure of
the facts when you report them to us. It would be
detrimental to the program if the wrong person receives
the correspondence from the Sheriff’s Office.
We are glad to have you as
a partner to help keep the streets safe for everyone.
Thank you for
David E. Lain
Sheriff David E. Lain
