A second Traffic Blitz, designated Christmas/New Year’s Blitz, was conducted from December 7th, 2019 through December 31st, 2019.

Deputies also executed one Felony and two Misdemeanor arrest warrants on three adults along with issuing 27 warnings during this Blitz.
The Traffic Enforcement Blitzes are paid for from a grant that the Sheriff’s Office received from the Ohio Department of Public Safety. Sheriff Miller and his deputies are dedicated to protecting the citizens of Fulton County and the motorists who travel its highways.
This grant allows extra patrol to enforce the traffic laws that will increase the safety of motorists on the roadway in the areas that are prone to a higher number of serious and fatal crashes.
