Sheriff Walker Calls Scott's Law Detail Success

DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker is calling a special detail of the Scott's Law a success.


The Sheriff indicates his department's Tuesday detail resulted in 14 citations, seven speeding warnings, two speeding citations, and a warrant arrest. 



Sheriff Walker says the objective of the detail served several purposes. He feels it gives them the chance to make the public aware of the laws and it provides protection for not just emergency service workers but anyone pulled to the side of the road for whatever reason.



The Sheriff says as Illinois leads the nation in line of duty deaths by law enforcement, it's time for them to be proactive in enforcing the laws and sending a message to keep them safe when they are doing their jobs.
