Highway Grants Pay For Extra Enforcement Efforts


October 1st marked the start of a new Highway Grant cycle for the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department. Like the past year this year the Department will be coordinating $110,000 in grants. But that also funds extra patrols for enforcement efforts for Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac, Town of Ripon, Rosendale, Oakfield, Brandon-Fairwater, Waupun and Campbellsport Police Departments. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says $70,000 of that grant money will be used by his department and the Fond du Lac Police Department for extra patrols of Highway 23 east of Fond du Lac. It is heavily traveled and they see a lot of reckless driving and crashes on it. The remaining $40,000 will be used for other traffic enforcement initiatives throughout the County. Waldschmidt says the Waupun and Campbellsport Police Departments were not included in their grant funded efforts in the past year.
