What's Happening at The Porter County Sheriff's Office
School Year Begins
A new school year begins in just a few weeks in
Porter County. The Porter County Sheriff's Office urges motorists to use
extreme caution when driving through school zones or near school
buses. The 20 mph speed limit posted in school zones should be always
observed and drivers are warned to always stop for school buses
when children are loading and unloading. Many children, especially
those attending school for the first time are unfamiliar with pedestrian safety
rules. Careful driving can prevent a tragedy and ensure the safety of
our children throughout this school year.
We will be working hard to insure a safe start
and a safe school year for all of Porter County's students. There will be
increased patrol in school zones and violators will be ticketed.
Lets make this a safe year for
Luck to our teacher posse members, Penny Callahan and Melody Crowder
as they start the new school year!
