Officers will join more than 250 state and local law enforcement agencies, and thousands more across the country, to conduct high-visibility patrols encouraging drivers and passengers to buckle up.

Click It or Ticket is an annual enforcement effort supported by federal funding allocated to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department from the Traffic Safety division of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI). Marshall County officers will work overtime to conduct seat belt patrols around the clock. According to ICJI, in 2015, there were 818 fatalities on Indiana roadways. Of those fatalities, 33 percent were unrestrained.

“The more we explain the importance of seat belt use, the more we see drivers and their passengers buckling up,” said ICJI Director Dave Murtaugh. “This campaign is about the importance of wearing your seat belt, and I am thankful for all those involved.”

Indiana law enforcement agencies have been actively involved in the Click It or Ticket campaign for over 20 years.
