[ARCHIVED] Weekly Update Article August 8, 2022

From July 31-August 7, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 802 calls for service/events.   Our higher call volumes occurred in the following areas:  Traffic Stops-151, Traffic Violations-43, Check Well Beings-34, Shoplifting Complaints-33, Suspicious Situations/Subject/Vehicle-32, Assist Citizen/Motorist Assist-32, Larcenies-22, Traffic Hazards-21, Alarms-19, Personal Injury Crashes-16, Property Damage Crashes-15, Civil Complaints- 14, Domestic Disputes-12, Car/Deer Accidents-12, Unknown Problem-12, and Property Damage Hit and Run-10.

Many of our Eaton County schools will be starting classes in the next couple weeks, which means drivers will be seeing an increased number of busses on roadways during peak travel times.  Please review these school bus safety tips with drivers and children in your home - 

School bus safety tips for drivers:

  • Prepare to stop when a slowing bus has its overhead yellow lights flashing
  • Stop at least 20 feet away from buses when red lights are flashing, unless driving in the opposite direction on a divided highway
  • Slow down in or near school and residential areas
  • Look for clues-such as safety patrols, crossing guards, bicycles, and playgrounds-that indicate children might be in the area
  • Watch for children between parked cars and other objects

School Buses are like traffic signals:

  • When overhead lights are flashing yellow: Prepare to stop
  • When overhead lights are flashing red: Stop
  • When hazard warning lights are flashing: Proceed with caution

School bus safety tips for students:

  • Always stay in sight of the bus driver
  • Don't hurry off the bus; check traffic first
  • Don't go back to the bus after exiting

Yours in Public Safety

Sheriff Tom Reich
