Traffic Enforcement

OVI Checkpoints – Conducted several times per year at varying locations, OVI checkpoints identify drivers who are operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Checkpoints take place on roads that have experienced a high occurrence of alcohol-related crashes, deaths or arrests. Funding comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Motorcycle – The township’s motorcycle improves traffic enforcement with its low profile, while its size and maneuverability enable it to respond quickly to traffic accidents where vehicles block the scene. The motorcycle also helps connect police to the community by making the officer riding it more approachable.

 

Speed Enforcement

Speed Board – When residents express a concern about speeders on their streets, the MCSO substation positions a trailer with a speed board in the neighborhood. The speed board monitors vehicle speed and serves as a friendly reminder for motorists.

Civilian Volunteer Program – Civilian volunteers assist with directing traffic around crash scenes and with blocking off roads for downed trees, power lines and major crashes. They also position the speed board in neighborhoods and help with vehicle counts at OVI checkpoints.

High-Visibility Enforcement – Officers work overtime on traffic enforcement during holidays to help make sure that travel is safe. A grant from the Ohio Traffic Safety Office pays the overtime for officers to provide this High-Visibility Enforcement.

Child Safety

Child Safety Seat Inspections - Inspections are provided through a coalition of police and fire agencies. Most child safety seat events take place at the Washington Township Public Works building, 8190 McEwen Rd. Check here for information about Super Service Saturday events where safety seat inspections take place. At other times, inspections are by appointment only. More information about safet seat inspections can be found here. To schedule a time, call the Fire Department at 433-3083.
