12/21/17 – 5:33 A.M.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office says proactive policing in the community is working. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the authorities recently talked about a year-long effort to bring down crime numbers and keep residents safe. Sheriff Brian Siefker says they’re dedicated to having a stronger presence in the community.

Siefker tells the newspaper his office sees the increased presence in the number of traffic and other citations. He adds that deputies give out more warnings than traffic citations. In the last four months of 2017 deputies wrote 110 more warnings than citations.

The sheriff’s office has used grant money to help pay for enforcement blitzes.
