A week of saturation patrols by Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies yielded five arrests and more than 120 citations, authorities said.
The patrols, which ran from Nov. 21 to Nov. 27, focused on seat belt usage, impaired driving and other traffic laws, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies wrote 68 safety-belt citations and four child-restraint citations. Another 53 citations were issued for other minor traffic infractions.
Five people were arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor crimes. Seven deputies worked the saturation patrols, which were paid for through a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
