The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office is conducting school bus safety patrols through August 30th.  Recently the Sheriff’s Office was awarded a Stop-Arm Violation Enforcement (SAVE) grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI).  
Additional deputies will be working SAVE during peak times when school buses are loading and unloading students across La Porte County.  The high visibility enforcement project will specifically target speeding violations, aggressive drivers and school bus stop-arm violations.  
SAVE is a traffic safety grant that is funded with monies from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and administered by ICJI.  For more information related to traffic safety visit .
