The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office and other local law enforcement agencies will be participating in a high-visibility safety campaign within Washoe County school zones and routes.

Additionally, the WCSO will provide education to students on best-practices for walking, bicycling and the use of other modes of non-motorized travel to arrive at school safely.

The WCSO will also provide information to drivers about safe driving in and around school zones and school routes.

Funding for these extra patrols is made possible by a grant received from the Nevada Department of Public Safety/Office of Traffic Safety.
